My personal take on this would be to suggest that the hard drive driver and 
descriptor are not right for the drive setup that they're being asked to 
work with.

If this is a SCSI setup, the ID must be correct in the descriptor, and the 
driver must be the right one for *that* drive and controller.

I have used SCSISYS with good results, but you do need to know some facts 
about the drive to make it work.

The automatic descriptor creation doesn't always work automajickly, IMHO.
