I'm building a machine for a friend, and have been out of the techy type
thing for a bit(as you can see from the latter half of my email address),
and need help from the group.
The guy wants to buy stuff from dabs.co.uk so they have to have it in stock.
Only requirements are SCSI on board, graphics on board(nothing too flash).
so thats oem motherboard, memory, cpu.
A pint to the helpers!!
She will be a linux/NT box.
Thanks in advance

Subject: Re: [ILUG] RAIDing
I've used Mylex DAC960 and Compaq SMARTarray-2 cards. Both worked fine.
Linux supports a few more cards like the DPT ones, but i've never used
RedHat 6 installs straight onto Compaq SMARTarray-2 based system's - no
need to install onto a disk on a normal controller first. I think the
same goes for the Mylex cards.
The older i960 based DAC960's are pretty slow though. The newer
StrongARM based Mylex eXtreme cards are supposed to be a lot faster
And if you're skint you could always try linux software RAID which will
knock the socks off any hardware controller speedwise.
