Interesting.  I had a CS20 running a few years ago (I still have it in
a moving box somewhere).  It would run multiprocessor fairly well, but
eventually it would get massive filesystem corruption.  So it sounds
like the state of things has changed since then.

I also recall having to swap out SCSI controllers.  One OEM one worked
in Tru64 but not NetBSD, and the other one (I think Adaptec-based?)
worked in NetBSD but not Tru64.
