One of my servers has a DPT 2144UWR hardware RAID card with three 4GB
drives. It's quite slow - about one third to half the speed I would
expect from any one of those drives direct from a standard SCSI card.
But the card was cheap for RAID at the time and I was after data
integrity rather than speed. It only had to be faster than 10BaseT. The
setup works extremely well. The only drawback is DPT haven't released
Linux control software yet. If one disk goes belly up the card screams
incessantly. And it's one of those screams you just cannot ignore. To
fix the problem, I would have to boot DOS and run the control software
there, muting the speaker and initiating a rebuild on the replacement
