This may or may not help, but I'm using an external Bernoulli
Transportable/150 when I run Linux/68k off of my Amiga 3000 at home. I
have one cartrige that I use as /usr. (Yes, I aught to change this so I
can use other cartiges, but is suits me just fine right now.) The
Bernoulli works flawlessly -- until it spins down after 30 minutes of
disuse!!!! Then the next SCSI access to the Bernoulli locks the machine
up! Well, I put a kluge in: root's crontab file touches a temporary
file on /usr and sync's every twenty minues. Thus, it never spins
Unfortunately I've never had the opportunity to try using the Bernoulli
on a PC yet. Since the Linux/68k 0.9.4 kernel is based on the Linux
"i86" 1.0.9(?) kernel, I presume that it's not the SCSI code in the
kernel, but...I'm just making wild guesses here. Could it be the
controller? The time of day? How many pigeons occupy Central Park?

Unix can't be all that bad. After all, there's a "cat" but no "dog" command.
