You need to play with the magic in sys/arch/pmax/pmax/conf-glue.c and
sys/arch/pmax/conf/scsi.pmax due to the funny SCSI configuration method
that the PMAX uses.  I've got a machine with 7 disks on the internal bus
without any problems.  I'll send a patch when I get to work.

Jonathan - I've been running with this for a couple of weeks now, should
I check it in and submit a pullup request?
