I recently talked a fellow Amiga-user into installing BSD on his
However, he wants for it to live on his Blizzard IV-SCSI drive.
During bootstrap of the GENERIC installation kernel, the following

The A1200 IDE drive is recognized just fine, whilst his SCSI-controller
seems to bomb out on the kernel.
Is this a hardware malfunction (both controller and drive work fine in
AmigaOS) or is it a general problem with the bzivsc (BlizzardIV SCSI)
If it requires a kernel recompile, I do have a perfectly working NetBSD
system (A4000/040) which could perform this task.
His specs are:
A1200, Blizzard IV (68030/68882) with the SCSI module.
SCSI ID 0: Conner CP3040A 40mb
SCSI ID 1: IBM 0611467 381mb
