Yes, I'm assuming something like this is happening.  It is not that big
of a problem, as I'm currently using an IDE drive anyway.  Still, it
would be nice to have a SCSI controller that the SRM can boot.  When I
bought this one I wasn't sure if it would be a SYM53C810 or 'A', so I
was gambling anyway. :)

I wouldn't mind monkeying with SRM, it is flashing it to the motherboard
that I would avoid.. :)
Anyone know how it is compressed anyway?  Apparently it is compressed and
has a signature at the beginning. (or so it appears to me)
