 Any success?
 I think I've been hit by a similar problem trying to upgrade from
 FreeBSD 5.x/i386 to 6.x/amd64 on an AND Athlon 64 X2 3800+, with a
 Tekram DC-390 SCSI adapter.
 When booting from the FreeBSD install CD-ROM (6.1-BETA3 as well as
 6.1-20060320-STABLE-amd64), the boot stops with a panic; I'm not
 sure it always does at the same place, I noted one at device scan:
 Waiting 5 seconds for SCSI devices to settle
 (noperiph:sym0:0:-1:-1): SCSI BUS reset delivered.
 (noperiph:sym1:0:-1:-1): SCSI BUS reset delivered.
 panic: sym: VTOBUS FAILED!
 Uptime: 6s
 Cannot dump.  No dump device defined.
 Automatic reboot in 15 seconds - press any key (etc.)
 Another happened after card detection; from memory, I think it was:
 sym0: <1010-33> port (etc.)
 panic: sym: VTOBUS FAILED!
 Uptime: 1s
 My dmesg with FreeBSD 5 follows.  I haven't yet tried 6.x/i386.
