Well, as far as the subject line is concerned, I have problems. Rebooting
Linux appears to cause the something to happen to my SCSI controller such
that the card's ROM BIOS doesn't get called after AMI BIOS has finished doing
it's stuff. Consequently, since all my hard disks are on that controller I
can't boot anything at all unless I then perform a hard reset.

This doesn't occur with 1.2.11. I will try a few other kernels shortly to
determine roughly when this behaviour appeared. One thing that has
occured to me is this: I recently reinstalled my WD8013 card, and I'm
pretty sure this problem didn't occur before then. Something else to try
out then... Any ideas...
