I see that the TekRam DC-390U/W SCSI cards are on the HCL.
Is anyone using the DC-390U2 controller on FBSD 4.0. I'd
like to verify this before I make a purchase.
Thanks in advance.

I am considering the purchase of a Tekram DC-390U2W Ultra2 SCSI card. It has
Symbios 53c895 and 53c141 chips on the card. The 53c895 appears to be the
Ultra2 controller chip, and I don't have a clue what a 53c141 chip does.
The specs can be found at:
The FreeBSD 3.1 release notes mention the Symbios 53c895 chip, and the Tekram
DC390W, 390U and 390F controllers. No mention is made of the 53c141 chip.
Is the DC-390U2W card supported under FreeBSD 3.1? If not, will it be
supported under FreeBSD 3.2 or 4.0?
If any one is using it, has it been a good card or troublesome (i.e. would you
buy it again or would you go with Adaptec and/or Mylex and/or Buslogic)?
