The boot messages indicate that the kernel recognizes a
Micropolis drive. Accept the line that reads "SCSI: CDROM NEC detected total" instead reads "SCSI: detected total" for
a system without the CDROM and with the Micropolis drive. The same trantor SCSI card works 100% with a NEC cdrom. I believe this to be a problem with the Micropolis jumper settings and have tried various combinations.
