Because they never really worked and because they weren't supposed to be
shipped. The upcomming Revision C (due out in about 2 to 3 weeks at this point) 
will include a fully working SCSI hard disk driver (support via the AHA1540/42A
controller). Support for 9 track and cartridge tape devices are supported along
with booting from a SCSI disk.

Also a note about the Adaptec AHA1540/42A controller, the lastest version
of the board(s) will work with the Everex Step Series computers, however,
the motherboards must be at least at G2 revision or higher.
