My cas(4) interface had no problem after netbooting. 

As for disks - kernel report 53c1020/53c1030 Symbios Logic, but mpt(4) support 
LSI 53c1020/1030. Are they the same?

V440 box (two-way) stopped responding after a night of doing nothing :) V240 
doing fine, but have to reset on "unmounting file systems".

And one thing more - I found V240 booting from harddisk can't find root and 
I have to enter it on each stage.
