I am having problems installing NetBSD 1.5.3, NetBSD1.6 and NetBSD-current.
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2650 with 2 Adaptec AIC-7899 adapters (Build 25309)
with the Serverworks chipset.  Booting from floppy keeps giving me No hard
drives found, upon further investigation I noticed the following lines
during boot.

ahc1: at pci 6 dev 6 function0: unable to map registers
ahc2: at pci 6 dev 6 function1: unable to map registers

I looked in the archives and found messages about this error and that it had
been fixed.  Does anyone have information that would help me install NetBSD
on my Dell PowerEdge 2650?  Thanks in advance for your help.
