I want to buy myself a VLB EIDE multi I/O card, and would like a
recommendation or two on which ones will work best with Linux. My
- 2 EIDE ports to support 4 drives/devices
- FDD port
- 2 16550-compatible serial ports
- parallel port
- EIDE means supports PIO mode 3 or better (I don't yet have
any mode 4 drives, so...)
Any ideas? Thanks. Also, does anybody have any figures on how much
potential and real speed improvements with so-called enhanced modes
(either using a VLB card, or PIO mode 3 or 4)?
