Conroller recommendation?

Conroller recommendation?

Post by Vincent Calho » Wed, 26 Apr 1995 04:00:00

I have a dilema maybe you gurus can solve.  I have a 420Mb hardrive and a
1gig hd.  My BIOS will not read the gig w/o the lousy disk manager.  What I
want to do is add a new controller with it's own BIOS and put the gig on it.

Now my quaestion:
1)  Can I do this?  Eventually I want to put 2 high capacity drives on the
new controller and 2 regular drives on the controller built into the
motherboard.  Is this possible?
2)  Will a controller with its own extended BIOS eliminate the need for the
disk manager?
3)  Can anyone recommend a good controller?  Is it compatible with DOS,
Warp, WIN95, and LINUX (of course)

Thanks for any help
