Set up a spare Sparc-2 to run NetBSD-1.5.1 diskless, connected DNES to
on-board controller, and got:

sd0(esp:0:1:0): esp0: timed out [ecp 0xf03ac0d0 (flags 0x3, dleft d200, stat 0)], <state 1, nexus 0x0, phase(l 0, c 100, p 7), resid d200, msg(q 0, o 0) >

Works. I can newfs, then dump | restore some stuff, fsck, it works.
This is using the same cable, terminator, and power outlet where it
didn't work five minutes before connected to the NetBSD box.

To rule out this to some degree, I re-labelled the disk on SunOS, then
disklabel'ed and newfs'ed it again on NetBSD. No changes except for the
dleft/resid value.

The last straw to cling to is to get the above mentioned Sparc-2 to
netboot OpenBSD. The the hardware will not only be equal but identical
and the only difference will really be the OS...
