LSI 320 cards are more popular on amd64...
Does anyone have experience with the 2130SLP (and/or it's pci
counterparts, e.g. the 2120) under amd64, and if so, can you share your

I'm leaning towards the LSI, but my distributor stocks the Adaptecs and
all other things being equal it's easier to get everything from
under one roof...
Thanks for your input;)
