    If this patch doesn't do it we may be S.O.L. until a developer can get
    his hands on a similar system and figure out what the problem is.  If
    the FreeBSD CD can talk to it then its likely to be related to
    interrupt routing (we are somewhat behind in that area).

Not sure about your MB, but I have a large number of different SCSI 
controllers O/H here...

Is your SCSI controller embedded on the MB or separate?

- what make, model, & firmware rev?

And with what devices, and how are they cabled (important) & ID'ed?
