Which driver are you using for the SCSI chip ( assuming, you use the on-board chip
on the UX ) ?
There are some subtle specialities with the various Symbios/NCR chipsets along with
the bunch of drivers supporting them in the Linux-kernel.
Also, which SCSI-options do you set ( in the driver or via bootflags ) ?
