    Eric, one final question:
    http://www.lsi.jp/storage_home/products_home/host_bus_adapters/sas_hbas/lsisas3041er/index.html
    This obviously has 4 SAS/SATA ports (regular cables) and looks like it
    would be great in Linux/SW raid for SAS/SATA disks.

    This (8 port version):
    http://www.lsi.com/storage_home/products_home/host_bus_adapters/sas_hbas/lsisas3081er/index.html
    Has two SFF-8087 mini-SAS connectors.

    It states "two (4) x1 SATA cables"

    Does this mean:

    8087 ------------> 8087 (with 4 lanes)

    Thus it would require the purchase of an additional breakout cable or
    attachment to a special SATA/SAS enclosure.

    or:

    8087 ------------> regular sas/sata/1
    regular sas/sata/2
    regular sas/sata/3
    regular sas/sata/4

    Justin.
