And once again, Michael VanLoon forgets to state ``in my opinion''
before making the statement that buslogic is ``better''
I have always had Adaptec, and while I do agree that you should
consider VLB, PCI, or EISA over ISA, and for the same reasons (memory
use, speed, etc) I would recommend an Adaptec because I have had no
problems with them.
The 1542 drivers are ``rock solid'' as well. There is no support if
you have more than 16M of memory, yet. There will be. However, this
isn't an issue of BusLogic vs. Adaptec, it's a difference between an
outdated system bus with limited ability vs. someone programming
around it. All busmastering ISA cards will break in the same way with
more then 16M.
