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
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)
