This may no longer be necessary, but see below.
Acording to your log, your scsi drive also fails later, but boots from ide
(how did you managed to install the ide disks?).
I posted a message to linux-scsi describing this problem. I guess the sym2
driver never worked on the PReP machines. I tried it also with 2.4 kernels.
So to summerize it: No one has a working Powerstack with 2.6 kernel and
booting from SCSI. I hope there will be some input from the scsi list.

Yeah - I search so many times for a Millenium card on eBay. Now I got one for
EUR 1.00 but it is in Germany, while I'm in France now for holidays :-(
I also have a P9100 here, but it is not supported (yet?) under linux...
