Hi Net,

you all might have?

i want to avoid a compaq host, but what is second best? ast, alr, hp?

I've had very good success w/ALR.  Seems to be good bang for the buck.  If
you go for the Q-SMP line, they have support for multi-processors, hotswap
cages, etc.

1. Host Hardware Recommendations?

Hello,

I'm selecting a host for Linux & NT:

        Gateway 486 66V w/ 340 MB HD & ATI GUP (VESA)
          extras:
                16MB RAM
                2M VRAM + RAMDAC
                Ultrastor 34F SCSI Controller $210

        Wangtek 5150 $469 or Archive Viper 250 $439

        NEC 5FG

I'm looking for answers based on practical Linux experience
for the following questions. I have read the FAQ's and
would like to get some current opinions.

Q:      What are the pros/cons of IDE vs SCSI HD (same cost)?
        Opinions as to best choice?

Q:      Would I do better to get a different SCSI Controller?

Q:      Does an upgrade to 500MB SCSI HD for $235 sound wise?

Q:      Does an upgrade to 525MB tape for ~ $200 sound wise?

Q:      What is the future of Linux support of EISA 64MB DMA
        capability?

Thank you!
