PCI SATA should work, at last the ones that also work on other big-endian
system. Promise SATA cards works on sparc64 so they should be OK here.
actually, a "skymaster" 2 port SATA card that i puchased last
year does NOT work in my G4/733 tower. it causes the hardware
to fail POST or something -- i don't even get to the OFW prompt.
an adaptec card based on the same chipset -- satalink 3112 --
works just fine tho.
I was thinking about using a Promise based SATA card but I am willing to use
what ever works :) I can get promise very cheep that is all. So please let
me know what works.
Any one know about Comm slot Ethernet? I have read in one post I found that
comm Slot Ethernet cards by apple where supported but I can't find anything
on the NetBSD site.
