You have exactly same problem with me. I have AS2100 4/200. Until now,
there is no reasonable solution for this symptom.
Most important reason that I try NetBSD/alpha is support of my EISA
Mylex RAID. I have only disks connected to EISA Mylex, and NetBSD
supports it. If you have bootable disks in other devices(NCR, etc.),
try FreeBSD/alpha. I succeed to boot and see sysinstall, but I can't
go further because FreeBSD/alpha doesn't supports EISA Mylex driver.
