Can't get free page while making filesystem ...

I'm sure I saw a post about this in the past few weeks.  I've got a P-90
with 24 MB of RAM that I'm trying to make useful ... so I rounded up a
bunch of SCSI drives to toss in it.  However, when I try to make
filesystems on the 2 gig drives, it says it can't get a free page, and
freezes.  When formatting a 1 gig drive, it says it can't get a free
page, but manages to recover and finish the filesystem (As far as I can

I can get more memory.  I can, and have, obtained a better hba.  All
these errors occurred with an NCR 53c810.  I've got an Adaptec 2940W
sitting here that I can throw in there ... but I'd like to use both
controllers in the long run.

Let's see, important info ... we're running Debian 1.3, kernel 2.0.30.
The drives are a mixed bag ... Conner and Quantum for the 2 gigs, IBM
and HP for the 1 gigs.  There's also a Seagate and a Quantum in the
machine (yes, it's a junkman's special).  I'm sure I've forgotten some
pertinent info ...

Any ideas?
