	Having a SCSI Geometry issue on a 5.2.1-RELEASE-p4 system. It has
a Symbios SDMS PCI SCSI, 53C1010-66 adapter that shows up as :

sym0: <1010-66> port 0xa000-0xa0ff mem 0xf6000000-0xf6001fff,0xf6800000-0xf68003
ff irq 25 at device 5.0 on pci1
sym0: Symbios NVRAM, ID 7, Fast-80, LVD, parity checking
sym0: open drain IRQ line driver, using on-chip SRAM
sym0: using LOAD/STORE-based firmware.
sym0: handling phase mismatch from SCRIPTS.

	And to it I'm connecting an EasyRaid II RAID box. There is LITTLE
I can configure on it, basically termination, SCSI ID, and Raid 0/1/0+1/3/5
and thats pretty much it.

	When the system boots, the splash screen claims the geometry is 
1024/255/63 at 40M sync, and 16 wide. In the controller I've used 
"Alternate CHS Mapping" and "SCSI Plug and Play Mapping" without any

	When FreeBSD boots, it sees :

(noperiph:sym0:0:-1:-1): SCSI BUS reset delivered.
da0 at sym1 bus 0 target 3 lun 0
da0: <easyRAID II > Fixed Direct Access SCSI-2 device 
da0: 40.000MB/s transfers (20.000MHz, offset 31, 16bit), Tagged Queueing Enabled
da0: 1060184MB (2171256832 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 135154C)

	When I try to /stand/sysinstall it, fdisk pitches a serious fit about

	What can I do to get this configured properly? It seems that if I
bring it down to RAID-1+0, it configures up fine.
