I've had no real trouble with the Highpoint 1540 SATA card. The
downloadable drivers work fine under 5.3, but the install/setup is a
bit strange.
The drivers are on a floppy disk image that you just mount. Included
in the tgz file is a pdf file that describes the installation
instructions (there is no text file with the equivelent information).
