RE: PCI-to-IDE Cards for BCM91480b

1GB of memory is being used.  2 DDR2 512MB modules are used, each is
PC2-4200 (Micron MT18HTF6472AY).  An I/O Flex Ultra ATA/133 PCI-to-IDE
controller is used, and the card contains a Silicon Image Sil0680ACL144

I'm using a Silicon Image PCI0680 PCI card without any problems with 1
