	i386/conf/GENERIC still references the ed device that has recently
	been split into several other devices. I do not know whether or
	not the problem described still exists with the replacement devices. 
	This may also apply to the rest of the configuration files.
	Look at the following lines in GENERIC:

	# ISA tape devices
	# note: the wt driver conflicts unpleasantly with ed devices at the
	# same I/O address. The probe reprograms their EEPROMs. Don't
	# uncomment it unless you are actually using it.
