I have a few Ciprico RAID arrays that are left over from a previous project
and I'm planning on reusing them with
my NetBSD/Alpha box using an Adaptec 2944W.

Has anyone ever use the 2944W? Is it reliable?

My box is a DEC AlphaServer 400 4/166 running 1.3.

Also, in the INSTALL document, only the DEC AlphaStation 400 is noted as a
supported platform. What exactly is the difference between an AlphaStation
400 and an AlphaServer 400?

Finally I was wondering if running a 1.31 or 1.3.2 kernel on a system
originally configured with 1.3 could cause any problems?
