-	  <para>Your motherboard lacks the external logic to support
-	    automatic termination.  Switch your SCSI BIOS to specify the
-	    correct termination for your configuration rather than
-	    automatic termination.  The &man.ahc.4; driver cannot
-	    determine if the external logic for cable detection (and
-	    thus auto-termination) is available.  The driver simply
-	    assumes that this support must exist if the configuration
-	    contained in the serial EEPROM is set to <quote>automatic
-	    termination</quote>.  Without the external cable detection
-	    logic the driver will often configure termination
-	    incorrectly, which can compromise the reliability of the
-	    SCSI bus.</para>
