Looks so far that I am the worst off. If I am trying to boot with
a root on a SCSI device then either a controller is misdetected,
or goes into an infinite "abort/reset" loop, or it does not initialize
properly and disks are not found. This is a non-exclusive, logical,
"or". :-)

Booting to an IDE device makes difference only in that that if I can
boot then SCSI disks will be simply ignored. If somebody is interested
in a collection of dmesg outputs, with DEBUG printks, from such attempts
then I am game. Ivan was getting these pretty consistently. :-)
