I think so. When I tested FastTrak66 for a while, it works
fine as Ultra66. I didn't tested FastTrak100. However, I
think easiest way is buying Ultra100 or Ultra66 and use it
with RAIDframe or CCD.

Actually, both driver software and loaded BIOS supports RAID
feature. I guess they are independent, but I'm not sure.
Moreover, Ultra66 and FastTrak66 probablly has one same ID.
I had to decide which driver I needed while installing a
FT66. I heard a rumor Ultra100 and FastTrak100 have a
different ID. I remember installer decided which driver it
needed while I was installing a FT100.
Is there any easy tool to get `ID'? I have only FT100 now,
but somebody may have other cards.
