We are using exabyte 8200's on NetBSD 1.1 with buslogic and ncr SCSI
controlers.  They work OK.  Sometimes the first command you issue to the
drive results in an I/O error, but then subsequent commands work fine.
Also, if you attempt to read a dump tape and specify the wrong block size
it crashes the system.  Other than those two things they are working fine
(doing nightly backups of 6 9 gig seagates).
