Re: SCSI Host Adapter (+ Re: 2 CPU servers)

     BusLogic supports free software and is well supported under Linux? 
Very well. Probably I'll have one customer of mine buy new machines very
soon, they will buy what I say. (Maybe me too - going to buy a new
harddisk - will replace my Adaptec 2940 with a BusLogic instead of a
2940UW or 3940W or anything else from Adaptec.)

     There was mention of a specific model, Buslogic BT-948: is it such a
"low-end" card or one with that CPU onboard? 
     Better question: what do you think is a medium-high level BusLogic
card with good price/performance ratio and - most important - well
performing (reliable and fast) with Debian GNU/Linux? 
     And what about 2 CPU usage? I read on this list recently that the
kernel is getting mature for Linux with such motherboards:
