Jaz drive on OpenBSD/pmax 2.2


Can anyone advise what parameters to use for disklabel-ing the 1GB Jaz
disk under OpenBSD 2.2 on pmax (DECStation 5000/133)? I have just about
managed to get it going but something isn't quite right. I get occasional
kernel messages: 

Dec 29 21:24:04 una /bsd: asc_intr: IN: dmalen 10 len 0 fifo 1

which go away if I disconnect or not use the Jaz drive. Also if I try to
dump the Jaz disk onto a 4mm tape I get: 

root una:/root # /sbin/dump -0ua -f /dev/nrmt0 /usr/src                         
  DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Tue Dec 30 23:24:17 1997                     
  DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch                                    
  DUMP: Dumping /usr/src to /dev/nrmt0                                          
  DUMP: bad sblock magic number                                                 
  DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.                                             
root una:/root # 

I am currently using the following /etc/disktab entry:

jazz|JAZZ|Iomega Jazz 1GB removable drive:\

Any suggestions? BTW, tar works fine...
Thanks in advance..
