Are these DTC cards supported?  It appears odd that DTC chose to use a
"public" chipset (i.e. non-proprietary).  No offense intended to our
DTC lovers out there.

Since we've swung the conversation to SCSI cards, if this DTC card is
supported, how does it rate in speed/reliability/problem_free compared
to Adaptec and Buslogic cards (the ones that actually work with blah MB
and NetBSD).

Also, since this conversation is highly PeeSea specific, why don't we
move it to port-i386.. (I've made the start, sorry for the crossposting)
