Strange. I actually haven't moved anything into modules yet, so all the
supported SCSI drivers are still built in, just like in the 2.6.8 and 2.6.11
images I made. I had the usual problems, the the gvp-ii scsi driver is
making my box unstable. I disabled that now for me, I hope it will last
longer. But dmesg has a funny entry at the bottom:

The real debs (-5) were just accepted in debian, they are based on the same
m68k patches I used for building the version you tried. Just get the source
for linux-2.6 or check it out from the svn. All the magic is in the common
source package, m68k uses just one big patch. Have you checked if your scsi
driver is actually enabled in the config? Does the driver still compile?
What does dmesg (on AmigaOS) say?
