Did you boot NEWS-OS before booting NetBSD?
Sometimes it caused problem. It seems some more initialization
is needed for SPIFI SCSI, but I have not tracked it yet.
Does your news5000 not boot NetBSD properly even after power-cycle?

Did you connect external disks? If so, please also check
cables and terminators. It might cause problem even if
it has no problem with NEWS-OS. There is few sanity checks
in our SPIFI driver.
BTW, the snapshot was built on NWS-5000X with SCSI disks on SPIFI ;-)
