Maxtor ATA 100 PCI card; Linux
Hi, I am finally moving my main server over to Linux (Slackware 8). I have a Maxtor ATA 100 PCI card in it, which is basically a remarked Promise card. Is there a better supported card i should use? Thank You.

The promise cards are supported in the later 2.4 kernels (maybe earlier). I can dig out the module name if you wish but it was a while ago that I got it working... As for a 'better' supported card - pass, I can't say I've ever setup anything other than promise based controllers.

my Sunix CMD64x controller has always worked absolutely perfectly. Not had it all too long tho.. so there's always tmie for it to go wrong! it does however take upto a minute to find the connected devices on bios boot, any ideas how to make it go faster??
