I have Promise Ultra33 and Ultra66 cards off the ground.
Beware - at least on my systems, the old wd0 gets renumbered to wd2.
That's on Compaq Deskpro Celeron boxes.
In hindsight, that's obvious from the old dmesg output - the "not
configured" message for the Promise card is ahead of the stuff describing
the boot disk.
I haven't kicked the tires much. I can at least read bits well enough
to measure the throghput.
PS: If you try Robert Elz's Ultra66 additon, PCI_PRODUCT_PROMISE_ULTRA66
will be undefined. It needs to get added to pcidevs.h. It's 0x4d38
which you can get from the not-configured msg in your old dmesg output.
