For even more performance (Ultra-160), I have successfully used an
Adaptec 39160 (dual channel) card in LX or SX boxes with the last SRM
console, and it can be booted from SRM.

Note that the single channel versions (29160/29160N) do NOT boot from
SRM, though they do work fine from Linux...

Note also that most other SRM consoles of EV5 and EV56 machines (like
MIATA or AS500, etc) probably do NOT have the necessary Adaptec driver
for the 39160.
