Hmm, isn't there a problem with Compaq systems in that they don't
totally obey the PCI bus specification?  You might want to search
the mailing list archives for Compaq and PCI (questions and scsi).
You might also want to post this question to the freebsd-scsi
mailing list so that Stefan and Justin see it (the resident PCI
and SCSI gurus).
