Re: Debian install/2.4 Kernel/ATA-100 RAID
hi ya marcus
the system will work at ata33 speed...if you can run at ata66...
it will run there... if you have the ata100 patches it will try to run
faster... supposedly..but it will at least run ata33 as a minimum
( kinda like the modem handshaking...anybody speaking ata100 out there )
even if eveythng is tweeked... i bet you can't sustain 33Mbyte/sec
transfer speeds....across the disks...
- all those ata/xx is just a "claim" ???
- similarly with scsi-scsi2-scsi3-uwscsi3-scsi160-etc
lots of testing to tweek and optimized for your hw...by the time
you're satisfied...it'd be time to upgrade again...
and yes...keep slower devices on separate cables/channels..
