it doesn't matter other than performance. Your are better off throwing in
Adaptec 2940 card.  People on this list have shown the vxa drive on it's own
bus operate much much better! My two are on an Adaptec card in an upgraded
8500 (newertech G3) and it get about 160 meg/min across a 100baseT network.
