The -current snapshot kernel-image disk boots on my machine, but
doesn't recognize the 4Xe either.
The words `doesn't recognize' are *extremely* vague. What, precisely,
does the kernel display when it boots?
This note is a revision of a message that was posted yesterday on
comp.unix.bsd.netbsd.misc. Since then I've had some e-mail from
someone (Robert Yoder) who thinks that the Adaptec 1740 class host
adapters have trouble with all NEC SCSI cdrom drives under NetBSD. Is
there a consensus out there around this point?
That's absolutely false. I have a NEC drive here that I've been using
alternately on a 1742 and a 1522.
