Re: 1U server with 4 SATA ports and a 32-bit PCI slot
Supermicro AS1010P-T(R) should fit your bill:

you can choose either a PCIe-riser or a PCI-X one which is downward compatible
to 32bit PCI.
There's even a second slot of the same type, but it's half-height only.

Erm, why not?
You may have to test if the PCI-X slot is really compatible to the PCI card
you're going to use, if you're going to order a dozen I'm sure someone will
give you a test system before purchase.

I guess, you'll need quite a new kernel for the ServerWorks chipset, but I
tend to trust that one more than an nVidia solution I must say - from what I
hear (from my sales rep at a systems builder) and read Tyan and Supermicro
seem to lean towards SW too.
