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
have helped.

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 ?
