Don't buy the Tekram DC-390U2W. Nothing against this card but I bought it
in the hope that the Linux problem was Adaptec-dependant. It isn't. The
Tekram driver doesn't load either - or rather, the NCR driver which this
Tekram card uses doesn't load.
And having said that, I should add that that is my experience on this
Fujitsu H532i Team Server machine I have here. It probably works fine on
the rock-stable no-name machine I put together from components. <sigh>
I'll be testing that hypothesis as soon as I have got sendmail working on
our new server and can decommission the old one.
PS your other alternative, Mike, is to move over to FreeBSD. Rock solid,
easy as 3.147..., and works a dream with both the Adaptec and the Tekram.
In addition it is as cheap as Linux, has a 15 year longer development
history and a dedicated corps of helpful users when you get stuck.
