Dick: could you please run the following command and pass along the output:

	dmesg | grep -A 5 -B 5 'sd[a-e]' > scsi.log

The output will appear in the file 'scsi.log' (or what ever name you choose
instead). The dmesg command repays the kernel boot log, and grep will scan
for information on SCSI disks recognized by the kernel.
