Is the NCR53c825 PCI SCSI adaptor supported ?  The 825 is SCSI-3 - does
NetBSD support this ?  

Also, I have a SCSI Quantum Atlas and a SCSI Sony CD-ROM drive in a machine
with an NCR53c810 controller.  Occasionally, I get Input/Output errors from
the driver and there's not much I can do short of resetting the machine.
The SCSI cable is terminated correctly (by the drive) ; lately these I/O
errors have caused problems, seemingly from the CD-ROM (it's target has
come up in the drive error messages .  When I use userland utilities when 
this problem has occurred, I get 'Invalid argument' from cp, mv, etc.
Another problem I get from my NE2000 clone ethernet card on the machine,
and they happen a lot, are
ed0: length does not match next packet pointer

type errors.  This worries me - is this normal (I doubt it).  Can anyone
enlighten me on this ?

Thanks in advance
