[ ast < 1K ]
Subject: FreeBSD on AST Bravo 486/66d Wont run

I configured a Segate SCSI-II Hawk drive and an Adaptech 1542CF for a
486 system on a clone PC. It runs great on the clone.

The Adaptech is set to:
        IRQ 10
        DMA 5
        5.0 MB/SEC Speed
        I/O Addr: 330

I moved the controller and disk to a AST Bravo 486/66d. When I
boot from the disk I get the standard boot prompt. However, when I
select sd(0,a)/kernel or press return or give the -c option, the SCSI
bus hangs and the screen comes up iht the Adaptec 1542CF setup as though
I had pressed CTLR-A.

I see only a one line entry on the console about
biosdev=80 irq=0, etc.

Any ideas out there on how to get this AST to run FreBSD 2.1.5??

1. Panasonic CR562 CD-ROM on SB16 ;freeBSD 2.1.5R

Has anyone tried to boot a Panasonic CR562 CD-ROM on a SoundBlaster 16 interfaceusing 2.1.5R?  I have been trying for ages with no luck, both with the GENERIC kernel and a custom one.  I was under the impression from the freeBSD website docs that matcdc0 was the driver/controller to use.  What gives?  Help please.
