I have a very similar setup except I have a NEC and FIJUTSU disk drives. I have been
trying to get NetBSD going but with no success, It starts to boot, but traps when it tries
to load the kernel... I have been on the list but had no luck. If you get NetBSD running,
please give me a shout, and then we can compare system settings please.
