Thanks for the quick reply. In 9.0, it looks like sbp is commented
out in the GENERIC kernel.
# FireWire support
device firewire # FireWire bus code
# sbp(4) works for some systems but causes boot failure on others
#device sbp # SCSI over FireWire (Requires scbus and da)
device fwe # Ethernet over FireWire (non-standard!)
device fwip # IP over FireWire (RFC 2734,3146)
device dcons # Dumb console driver
device dcons_crom # Configuration ROM for dcons
btw, I don't get a boot failure. Once the 60-second timeout expires,
the boot process continues and ends with a working login prompt. I'm
just wondering how I can find out what it causing the message....
