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.
