I would guess the trouble is in a driver, but _not_ the BusLogic driver.
All three of my SMP Pentiums work fine when mounting a SCSI CDROM.

I built a -g kernel so I could locate the actual code that was
responsible, but the thing won't Ooops. I still have an Adaptec
controller. If it helps, I could install it and see if it Ooops.

Let me know if it would help.
