Beware of the AMI RAID controllers. I had one from an older Dell server
which I finally had a chance to try under Linux when Jeff Jones at AMI
released a beta driver a couple of weeks ago. In a single-CPU 440LX based
machine the driver worked great - good performance, low CPU overhead. In
a dual-CPU 44FX based Dell server box, however the driver kernel panicked
and crashed the machine regularly.
I don't know what the issues are, but this driver isn't ready for prime
Btw, I think it's great that AMI is developing a Linux driver for what
appears to be great product!
