Intel Pentium @ 120MHz, 32Mb RAM, Adaptec 2944W scsi adapter
System: NetBSD duster 1.2 NetBSD 1.2 (DUSTER) #0: Thu Oct 24 18:43:42 CST 1996 benno@duster:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/DUSTER i386

Attempted to bring up system with two fast wide differential SCSI drives
connected to the Adaptec at ids 11 and 12. The kernel found the Adaptec card,
configured the SCSI bus but didn't probe the drives. Moving the drives to
ids 4 and 5 solved the problem.

Connect drives at ids greater than 7 to an Adaptec 2944W
