I am sending this to you directly rather than the list,
because my local ISP may not send the message thru to the
list, whereas you may get it directly.
I had something similar on my A2000 with a GVP scsi
(that I think uses a similar scsi chip).
Anyway, somewhere in the docs there is a way to
set up no dma on the scsi, and that may help.
I am not home now, but traveling. If you cant find out how to
do this, email me, and I may have some record of it at home.
