Ahh, that looks good enough for me. It uses the Symbios/LSI 53c1010
chip, which appears to be supported by the sym53c8xx_2 driver in Linux
(can anyone verify this?).
By the way, newegg.com has that card (bare, card only) for $38!
So while I'm at it, can anyone recommend a good 10k RPM 36 GB SCSI hard
drive? Right now I'm looking at the Fujitsu MAP3367NP.
I'm making the assumption that pretty much any SCSI drive will be more
reliable than an IDE drive. Performance isn't the issue, reliability is
my main concern. I've been prompted to go SCSI because I'm *scared* of
IDE: I'm currently RMA'ing my *fourth* Western Digial wd1200jb drive
(IDE). I've had one good one and four bad ones. My main system is
running on the one good one; I no longer trust it. The four bad ones
were supposed to go in my other computer to be the live backup! The
other computer already runs off of SCSI. I figured I'll be safe and
actually run my main system of SCSI as well. The IDE will be demoted to
simple data storage.
