Hot Rod for SPARC 5

Hot Rod for SPARC 5

Sports Fans,

We have a 110 MHzSPARC 5 web server maxed out w/256MB RAM, currently
showing about 50% CPU load at times when usage is high.    Because of an
anticipated up-to-fourfold increase in volume, we've purchased an Ultra
10 w/512MB memory and a 300MHz processor.

Although the Ultra 10 may make it into production in time, there is a
possibility we'll have to use the SPARC 5 for a time.  I seem to
remember some ads for hotrodding SPARC chips, but I can't for the life
of me remember where- ain't the loss of short term memory great.  I've
looked in a number of places without success (I'm still looking).

Does anyone out there have  experience with/knowledge of such animals?
For those who would like to email me at work my work email is




1. Hot Rod ATA/66 Problem

I just bought an UDMA Hot Rod ATA/66 UDMA PCI adapter (Abit) and I've
got problems running it under linux. I'm using it as 3rd controller
(this should act, if it was recognized as a normal IDE controller, as a
controller for hde and hdf), but it is impossible to access my 10-Go WD
disk (e.g. with fdisk). This card is considered by windows NT and 98 as
a SCSI adapter, so I tried to mount it on sda (in fact, I tried all sd*
:-) and this doesn't work as well. Does anybody know if there's a driver
for this bloody card ?!?! Thanks a lot for the answers.
