Actually, the changes committed on 1997/01/10 seemed to break more
than they fixed. My HP drive (which I think has a somewhat messed-up
tag system, and is often not happy with the NCR controller) simply
wouldn't run with that, whereas before that set of updates it ran
just fine. (I've been meaning to debug this for about two months

My recommendation, if you're going to go with the NCR cards, is
test them first, and be prepared to ditch them if you see problems.
Also, be prepared to try out different versions of the driver.
