I am not a mac expert... there is a kernel option which fiddles with some
SCSI paramaters, do you already use something like that? If not, maybe
somebody here remembers or you search the list archives.
Since SCSI seems to be a major problem, can you hook up an IDE disk or use
root on NFS?
Well I don't think the Quadra 700 supports IDE... These "historical"
Apple computers all have SCSI and no IDE.
Regarding bootinng from NFS, as another person said the sonic driver
isn't present in this kernel...
