I recently had this identical problem with the same BusLogic
controller, and eventually tracked it down to incorrect SCSI
termination (a new drive was inserted in the middle of the SCSI chain
but the clown^H^H^H^H^Hinstaller left the termination on).  Errors and
freezes occured only when the system tried to access devices beyond
the termination.  Check and make sure only the *last* SCSI drive is
terminated and see if this helps.
