I've only just looked at this, but i have a Proliant 2500R, its old but
its working :)
Now i find when i rip out a drive from my RAID5 (5 actual disks) array i
get the soft error in the console lots of them... when i put the drive

The card i have mine on was some funky full length PCI thing, its
running FreeBSD 5.3 and is running perfect and has been for ages...

So hope this helps you find out what might be causing theses errors.
PS = I do still have the onboard scsi enabled and am using it for a CDRW
