Anyone in the current folks know why I might be getting problems with
FreeBSD on an Adaptec 1540 controller?

The machine works fine  on 2.2.8 and 2.2.6, but dies a horrible screeching
halt when installing 3.3 or 4.0.  It literally just locks up solid when
3.3 or 4.0 probes the machine during the install.  No messages, no nothing.
Using an IDE controller works fine.  The blue screen with the grey probing
window comes up and then the machine freezes, as if the probing got
stuck somewhere.

The machine is an Intel 486/33 with 485 cache board, 32 megs ram,
Adaptec 1540 or generic IDE controller.

It is a long shot, but I am curious if anyone knows of any problems in
using the Adaptec 1540A on 3.x or 4.x machines?

Any insights or suggestions are appreciated.
