Funny, i'm using a QL730 as well--it's in an external case at ID 2,
with active termination on that end of the bus. I don't know if it's
the active termination that's saved me or what, but I've been running
NetBSD since June (first 1.0, now 1.1ALPHA) and I've had no problems
that I've attributed to the drive. In fact, since moving to 1.1A the
SCSI problems I did have (for whatever reason, probably termination
issues) have completely cleared up. I think my uptime right now is 15
days or so. It's going down tonight to load my new, specially tuned
kernel. 8)

I would like to know what these supposed "Quantum problems" are--
the talk is worrying me quite a bit.
