What's the current status of Target Mode Fiber Channel these days?  I'm
interested in doing it with a sparc64 box.  Is there a recommended FC card?
I think I've got a couple QLogic 2100s laying around (I'd have to check what
model they are, they are the ones that a sun can't boot from, so that leads
me to believe that they are 2100s)

How well supported are the LSI MegaRAID cards as well?  I could probably just
bite the bullet and do software RAID since this box will be doing nothing else,
but I just like hardware RAID. ;)

Short of that, whare are good supported SATA cards?  How about the SiL 3114


"The reason I don't use Gnome: every single other window manager I know of is
very powerfully extensible, where you can switch actions to different mouse
buttons. Guess which one is not, because it might confuse the poor users?
Here's a hint: it's not the small and fast one."        --Linus
