It doesn't crash, only file corruption..

I have file corruption without any external devices.  It looks like the problems
appear when more than one SCSI devices are present.  You only have one internal
SCSI drive, right?

Do you mind telling us more exactly what type of file corruption you suffer
from?  It would also help if you could attach an output from hinv, or just tell
us what hardware you have.
