   Heh, having used the CMD646 in the Ultra5 for disk access, I have one 
   word: "ewwwww".  Maybe the chip used in the T1/105 is a newer rev, but 
   the U5 got abysmal disk performance (due to UDMA being disabled to work 
   around a chip bug, AFAIR) when using the on-board CMD646.

that's why mine only ever have boot or backup disks there :-)
preferably flash drives...
