Just returned from a wedding over the weekend. Here is a
little more of the status so far:

errors from dmesg:

Installing knfsd (copyright (C) 1996 okir@xxxxxxxxxxxx).
sym2: SCSI parity error detected: SCR1=132 DBC=50000000 SBCL=0
sym0: SCSI parity error detected: SCR1=3 DBC=50000000 SBCL=0
sym0:0:0:M_REJECT received (0:8).
st3: Block limits 1 - 16777215 bytes.
scsi0:A:5: unknown scsi bus phase a0, lastphase = 0xb4. Attempting to continue

This error occurs after the console login appears so I
think it is related to the knfsd start however I have not
taken the time to follow up on this yet.

Since I use this primarily as a file server, samba domain
server, internal web server for testing, etc X is to too
important so I really did not try much but I did attempt
to install a couple of other video cards. None managed
to survive the boot test. At least with the Diamond card
I have a console. Just thought it would be interesting to see if it would run but I have not invested a lot of time
