In trying to install 2.0-RELEASE from InfoMagic CD November 1994 I am having
the following problem:

First, the DECpc 560XL is a PCI based pentium system that has 32MB of memory,
adaptec 1542C, and a 3Com 3C503 (I know, yuck). Initially when I tried to 
boot the system I got up to the point where it initializes the NCR PCI bus
controller, then it hung. I now get to the point where it tries to change
root to fd0c then it hangs at that point. 

The output from the boot is:

pci0: scanning device 0..15, mechanism=2.
chip0 <intel 82434LX pci cache memory controller> on pci0:0
ncr0 <ncr 53c810 scsi> int a irq 11 on pci0:1
	reg20: virtual=0xf509e000 physical=0xc0000000
ncr0: restart (scsi reset).
ncr0 scanning for targets 0..6 ($Revision: 1.13 $)
too many scsi busses, reconfigure the kernel
chip1 <intel 82378IB pci-isa bridge on pci0:2
graphics0 <display device> on pci0:6
pci uses physical addresses from 0xc0000000 to 0xc0001000
changing root device to fd0c

at this time it hangs...

I've played with most setup options and cannot seem to find the proper ones
to change. Any and all suggestions will be most welcome.
