Thanx for your reply! (And thanx to all the others who wrote in
private email - i will answer them today ;-)

I have to say, that i didn't try the 2.1.x kernels - i even holded
back in reporting these error because i was willing to wait for the
always next kernel-release, but now, as this is still occuring i
wanted to share my experience ...

I will try the BSD driver at first and then wait for kernel 2.2.x to
try the new ncr53c8xx!

Thanx again and
