problems at all.
Only the first two drives will be found by Linux,
due to the very non-standard hardware on that card,
coupled with the complete lack of interest from Promise
in having it work under Linux.
But.. folks are reverse-engineering it, and support may come
someday Real Soon Now, in the 1.3.xx kernel stream.
For the cdrom on this card, you will require the 1.3.xx kernel stream.
See the README.ide file that is included with the kernel source for 1.3.xx.
