I tried to netboot NetBSD 1.2 on my 3/E and
got the same problem as Allan Crain, it
can't find the SCSI controller.

The 3/E uses a different bus address but the
same vector as a Sun3 SCSI controller. I looked
in the GENERIC config, and it looks like there
is no support for the 3/E SCSI controller.

I booted SunOS 4.1.1 with the 3/E SCSI controller
and a Sun3 SCSI controller jumpered for the second
controller. That works fine. I also tried a 753 SMD
controller and it can see that.

How hard would it be to add the support for the
3E SCSI controller?
