If you're using the easy binary installer, perhaps it simply wasn't
built with support for that controller?  I ran into that on an old
Proliant - the panic was perfectly explained when I realized it didn't
have the 53c8xx driver built in, and a suitably adjusted build fixed it
right up.

Speaking of rebuilding xen0/xenU kernels, what's the suggested
procedure to get to the point where one can "make *config" to make
changes?  I may have overlooked it, but what I ended up doing, almost
accidentally, was interrupting the xen0 build (I must have pushed the
wrong button, but my notes are unclear at this point), then clean and
*config and after that it worked very nicely indeed.  But slowly, which
reminds me to ask if the Xen build has a toggle for using both of the
CPUs - on a single PII/450 the pair of kernels took around 50 minutes.

The phenomenon of financial excess associated with
promising novel technologies is a recurring feature
of the last two centuries.  -- Andrew Odlyzko
