Just to prove YMMV my machine appears to work fine - I have built a
kernel from sources as of Saturday's CTM transfer (dunno how that
relates to sup - Giles??).  I was able to boot the kernel up without
any error messages at all, I have not tried to do anything else but
the lack of boot-time errors gives me some optimism.  I have three
hard drives (Seagate 1G, Micropolis 1936, Maxtor 207Meg) and a SCSI
CD-ROM on the chain all driven by a NCR53810 controller (NOT a SC200)
in an ASUS motherboard.  If I strike problems doing some further
testing I will let you know :-)
