Bus mastering IDE like the triton is a lot better than existing IDE, but
you still cannot queue up multiple tasks for a drive, you cannot seek one
drive while doing disk I/O on the other, you can only have two drives
per controller.

Triton IDE is a passable workstation level disk subsystem. Put 8Gb of disk
on an IDE box and try a full usenet feed and end user service. Then try it
with a pair of buslogic scsi controllers and SCSI disk instead of a pair of IDE
