For what it's worth, it turned out to be that the SCSI card is useless,
I installed an EIDE drive and it is now working (dqa0). However, some
mention that the disks should show up in 'show config' as dka0 would
I'm attempting to use a Tekram DC-310 (Symbios 53C810AE) and "show config"
won't even list the controller. Is there any setting which can be changed
(when placed in a PC) that will make it work ?
