Subject: NCR driver ** AGAIN **

I am really starting to get ticked off by this prob., so any help
would be mighty appreciated.
Our NetBSD-current box broke again last night, and this time my
colleague managed to freeze up the screen while attempting a reboot,
so I now have the whole message that previously has scrolled very
rapidly up the screen so I could not read it.
For those of you not following the story - every so often (randomly
- no heavy loading or stuff) the box goes apeshit and spits with an
NCR driver assert error. This neccesitates a cold boot - warm boots
hang when the boot sequence gets to the second number in the
8768765+874543874+9874654... sequence at boot. (Can someone tell me
what these numbers are? Is the second one swap? Am I stupid?)
The system is:
Pentium PCI 90 MHz 32Meg RAM
NCR PCI Fast SCSI-II Controller
Quantum Capella VP32210 2.1Gb Fast SCSI-II Hard Drive
2 SMC PCI Ethernet cards
Diamond Stealth SE PCI Graphics card
2 x COM
1 x LPT
NB: This type of HDD is being used by at least one other person
without problem. (Someone out there mentioned it in the last week or
NetBSD-current (1.1_ALPHA) Oct-19-1995 snapshot.
