Subject: Help: NetBSD 1.1 finding NCR 53c810 twice!

I'm trying to install NetBSD 1.1 on my 486, but it seems
to have problems detecting my NCR 53c810. It finds ncr0
and my three devices attached and then it finds ncr1 and
the same three devices. Then it proceeds to keep trying
both and some how the card or the kernel is alternating between
the two. I get a message saying ncr0 is not responding,
then ncr1 is not responding, then ncr0 is not responding...
and it goes on and on switching every 3 seconds or so.
I'm trying to install via SCSI CD-ROM and 3 seconds isn't
long enough to copy the kernel.
Anyway is there another boot disk I can try? Or maybe some
BIOS chipset setting? Could my SCSI termination be wrong?
It works great under Linux and DOS.
