Well, the `1400' means `Select Code 14, unit 0' .. bootrom device 
notation.  I would assume the `0' means `file 0', in this case, the 
bootblock LIF.  The bootroms aren't even loading the bootblock, so you're 
not going to see the `NetBSD BOOT' message.

This whole thing really puzzles me .. AFAIK, `Rev C' was the first 
bootrom to grok SCSI .. it may be quite picky about what kind of drive it 
reads.  You might try scrounging up another disk for kicks...

I'm curious which revision of the bootrom is on your 319...

I've had a 320, 345, 360, 370, 375, 380, 425, and 433, but never a 340 
or 319, so I've never been able to observe behavior such as this on a 340.
