RE: Replacement disk for RaQ 2

Koutech 4 x Hi-Speed USB 2.0 + 2 x SATA Combo PCI Host Controller Model

SYBA SD-SATA-1E1I PCI SATA Controller Card

They both work on 5.1 rc1 with generic kernel, the only problem for me is
that they are not stable, they crash under unknown circumstances (sometimes
under large/small transfers using samba) or when doing a locate.updatedb or
when moving files in between sata and esata drives.

/netbsd: satalink0:0:0: lost interrupt
/netbsd: type: ata tc_bcount: 2048 tc_skip: 0
/netbsd: satalink0:1:0: lost interrupt
/netbsd: type: ata tc_bcount: 2048 tc_skip: 0

Can you please post the brand and model of that SATA-IDE bridge, I want to
try it with my Promise Ultra100 TX2 to see if I can have better results.

Any recommendations on SATA cards that work?  I don't think you can boot
from a SATA card can you?

Though I have to admit that using an adapter in this situation probably
wouldn't slow down the outside access to the drive data much.
