Well, i have never tried that, but i have both the hardware (well a prep
rs6k, and various sata cards) to test it.

As for booting, i doubt it is possible, given that the sata cards around
don't have forth bios in them, at least not the cheapest you can find.

Maybe finding a card which is mac compatible will help there, not sure,
i will have to investigate and do some testing.
