just a data point: on my motorola blackhawk boxen (which are also 
PReP), the SYM53C8XX driver panics the kernel at boot time when there 
are more than 32 (or was it 64?) megs of RAM in the machine; this was 
with 2_4_ppc_devel from the bitkeeper repository. Generally, I've 
been unable to get SCSI going reliably with all the 2.4 series -- at 
the best, it's hanging after some 10 minutes of uptime with SCSI 
timeouts.

OTOH, a co-worker had success with a stock 2.4.17 on his blackhawk 
box.
