Sorry for that. >do you have any good reason for going for SATA and not SCSI (if you need >speed) and ATA (i.e. P-ATA [...] I intend to use two WD Raptor S-ATA discs for the machine. From what we've seen so far, their performance is quite remarkable. The 3ware cards are quite expensive, according to the pricing lists I've seen so far. I wonder if the 8506-card mentioned in another post also works in 32bit PCI slots. Otherwise, I'd need a Xeon board. But that's another post in the thread.
