I am very fond of the CMD 5440/5500 controllers, but they're somewhat
throughput-limited if you hook a pile of brand-new disks up to them (there
is a U2 model, but it only does 40MB/sec because the box hasn't got enough
oomph to do 80). There's a new 7240 model that I saw at Comdex that
really looked terrific, but it may be very expensive. Can't hurt to ask,
