We've got a couple of VA rackmount servers with adaptec scsi controllers that
print out several SCREENS worth of information as they probe all the busses
and joyfully announce that yes, there are still hard drives plugged into some
of them, and even gives me a list of the ones that DON'T have hard drives
plugged into them.

Interestingly, the bios also goes through a very similar ritual earlier in
the boot.
