Re: IDE controller card recommendation

Roberto C. Sanchez napisał(a):
I'm not going to answer about the right controller (dont have RAID experience) but IIRC can you can only have four IDE controllers in one system (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary & Quartinary) so your total will be 8 drives including the CD-ROM?
Only if they are seen as IDE controllers from computer's point of view. You could, for example get Promise Supertrak SX6000 and have more ide controllers.
Does that mean that if I plug in the two cards I cannot use the four new
channels in addition to the two onboard channels?  Is there any way around

As far as I see in /usr/src/whatever/Documentation/devices.txt there are up to eight IDE channels.
