	AMD K6-200 80 MB Ram, Diamond fireport 40, 3Com elink III
	Scsi bus: 1 Archive pyth 4mm dat
		1 Sun 2.1 GB Disk drive (the problem causer)
			It has a 68 pin wide connector outside, but is only a scsi-2 device
System: NetBSD wizard 1.3H NetBSD 1.3H (MAGIC) #0: Wed Oct 7 19:30:41 EDT 1998 sean@wizard:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/MAGIC i386

When the sun 2.1 gb drive is attached to the external connector on the fireport and the machine is booted the following occurs:

ncr0:0: ERROR(90:0) (0-21-23) (0/5) @ (script a:043000060).
ncr0:  script cmd = 878b0000
ncr0:  regdump da 00 00 05 47 00 01 0f 31 00 85 21 80 00 00 02
ncr0: restart (fatal error)
probe(ncr0:1:3): command failed (9ff) @ 0xf052c00
aborting job.

	Installl a fireport 40 w/current kernel, and external sun 2.1gb wide connector but really scsi-2 drive and boot

	unknown: I am currently attempting a recompile of the kernel w/the ncr driver set to 8 bit only..but I don't want that as a final solution.
