 More info on this - this disk itself is fine.
 The issue is with SMP. By chance I installed the non SMP 4.0 kernel and 
 everything worked. So I obtained a -current kernel, /boot and /boot.cfg and 
 booted with the -1 option to disable SMP and that works fine also.
 This means that my Intel Core2 Quad fails to SMP on my Abit IP35 Pro 
 motherboard with both NetBSD 4.0 SMP and 4.99.63. The BIOS is current as of 
 today, compiled on 20080318. For reference, Gentoo Linux amd64 has no trouble 
 running on this platform, all CPUs are active and appear to be working fine.
 The symptom with -current in SMP is now a hang after detecting the disk on 
 wd0. init is not reached.
