ive got about the same dilema and ive been going thru the issue and so far
i have found only two brands that can really give you a real raid not a
1- 3ware all series
2- adaptec 2XXXX series (adaptec 1XXXX series give only fakeraid!!)
3ware has had lots of goo review, thou both cost about the same, and
cost a lot :/
if someone else knows of other working brands that are cheap and can be
in european markets i would be more than glad to get my hands on some as
next new server budget has more than doubled just by adding the eware
card to the shopping list.

Sure......it's probably the best well-built box on the market for the
It's a Medion (German owned company) Composer
5200....Best Buy has
It's a 3.2Ghz P-4 with 800Mhz. FSB, SATA
w/200GB SATA drive, nVidia PCI
Express 16x, bunch of USB ports, 1 DVD drive and
DVD DL (dual layer)
etc.....all for uner $700. The sound isn't
supported so I installed an
Audigy 2 ZS.......ships with 512MB of RAM and I
added another 512.
So this thread started out being about SuSE 9.3 and OLD hardware right?
I have an old P-III with only standard PCI slots and I want to add SATA
raid on the cheap. I don't want fakeraid, I need the card to do some of
work since my processor is slow and I have limited (640mb) of memory. I
need to figure out what kind of SATA raid card might be out there on
or etc that I might possibly be able to afford; two drive support is
four would be better, more would be likely way out of reach price-wise.
Anyone know what cards are out there for standard PCI? That work with
9.2 like I have, or 9.3 like I might be convinced to upgrade to?
