         I tried to install NetBSD/i386 -current onto a SCSI disk in a 
Dell PowerEdge 6650 but NetBSD couldn't see the disk, even though the 
BIOS could, see


Enami Tsugutomo <> came to the rescue by suggesting 
I add code for the 6650's bridge to sys/arch/i386/pci/pchb.c.  I 
inserted this line


after this one (line 150):


compiled a release and found the 6650's disk could be accessed, see
                  hard disk can't be found during installation
