Thanks for that. I read the review but was still left with some
questions. (This may just be due to my lack of expertise in kernels).
It seems that the reviewers didn't get even Intel's RAID 0 to work,
and they installed on a 'PATA' drive and were only able to see the
SATA drives with the BIOS configured to make them look like PATA -
what does this do for the performance and capabilities - is it a
complete long-term fix? (or they could see SATA drives with no DMA, no
Ethernet and no video!) They don't mention ECC at all.
So I'm still curious as to whether anybody has first hand success with
either of these boards?
They were using a 2.4.20 kernel or a pre 2.4.21 kernel IIRC. I plan on
using it with PATA drives, so I can't offer any advice on SATA. I
prefer the Intel board cause it lacks all the bells and whistles other
manufactures insist on cramming onto their boards. The board even lacks
on board sound, but most people end up using their own sound card
anyways. I'll let you know how my Debian install gose as soon as I get it.
