i can't help you much at the scsi-issue here. as i said, i don't have a
disk attached to the machine any more. the last time i booted with disk
was a 2.4 kernel. and these errors (ABORT operation started / timed-out)
occured upon heavy load on the scsi bus. i think i've never booted a 2.6
kernel with a scsi disk attached. but the errors look familiar :-(

ironically, now that i am able to netboot the machine, i'm not *using* it
anymore. but i'm building PReP kernel everyday, results and a config-file
