- SRM doesn't recognize it, and thus can't boot from it.  I do see it
- in 'show config', and NetBSD recognizes it correctly.

	My guess here would be that it shows up as PCI device ID
0x10000005 (the 53c810AP) intead of 0x10000001 (the 53c810.) 
(these numbers come from sys/dev/pci/pcidevs.)

	I suppose one could attempt to patch SRM to recognize
the other ID, but it's not something _I'm_ up to.. :-)
