Hmm.  I haven't had a problem with that, and I also have a PCI S3 Trio64.

I did find out that the prom does _not_ like the PCI Millennium II.

I also tripped across the fact that it does not like a HD sitting on SCSI ID 
2.  I moved it to 3 and everything was peachy.

I did a re-install of R5 last night to upgrade the drives and some hardware 
(and to see what a BeOS install looked like).  Now I have three SCSI drives 
(BeOS on 4Gig, 2Gig, 2Gig) and 128Meg of mem.  This is a 603/66MHz box.
