   unfortunably, some manufacturers don't implement the full PCI specs, but
   only what's needed to work in a PC (and I suspect such adapters would fail in
   some high-end PCs too). For example, some older promise adapters don't have
   all the address line wired, so don't work on systems which maps the DMA
   registers above 0x10000.

i meant to meantion that this card *does* work (well) in a sun ultra10.
