It's not Adaptec specific though - I get the same problem with a 
Compaq 5304 SMART RAID. Something about the way these cars do
interrupts ?

Am trying to find a way to get a serial console up to capture some messages.
Not helped by the fact that the only other PC in the room died last
night. Grrr... currently trying to rig up something with a USB/RS232
adapter that I have to connect a PowerBook to a mobile phone!
