Does Solaris 7-X86 support UMDA-66 drives?  Patches?  works just fine?

The 10+ GB drives are really cheap.  Very tempting.

The drivers that come with Solaris themselves probably don't support the
UDMA66 mode, but the drives should work just fine regardless, in lower DMA
modes.

1. State of UDMA/66 and UDMA/100 support

What is the state (both in 2.2.18 and 2.4.x) of UDMA/66 and UDMA/100
support, both in terms of integrated motherboard controllers and
add-on cards (if there is any difference)?  I've not been in the
market for new iron in over 5 years, so I've gotten a bit behind on
exactly what Linux is supporting these days.  I have gone to
www.linux-ide.org, but didn't find that terribly enlightening - lots
of utilities and patches, but not much clear documentation on what
*is* supported.

And if UDMA/66 and UDMA/100 are not supported, does that mean the
controllers just won't run at those speeds (but will still do
UDMA/33)?  Or does it mean Linux won't even see those controllers?

I'm starting to see more machines/motherboards boasting about
UDMA/100 support and I want to make sure I don't buy something
that Linux won't work with.

Thanks!
