I finally managed to compile -current (1.3H) from 9/10 in the

With the old NetBSD partition ID (=165) the kernel boots fine and
finds all devices. It complains about old BSD partition ID (four
times) and gives me a shell. When I now fsck or disklabel or such,

(e.g. disklabel -r sd0)

it prints a message "ahc0: ahc_scsi_cmd: error 22 loading dma map"

and hangs.

When I change the partition id to 169 with (p)fdisk my bios does not 
find any vaild boot program and just hangs there.

This box ran 1.3.2 find until this afternoon.
The ahc is an Adaptec2842 >= Rev E

Any ideas?
