One tray of 10 10k RPM disks, per controller. The controllers are also
spread across 2 completely separate 64bit/66Mhz PCI busses (not bridged).

Bus 10, device 8, function 0:
SCSI storage controller: QLogic Corp. QLA2200 (#2) (rev 5).
IRQ 23.
Master Capable. Latency=96. Min Gnt=64.
I/O at 0xb000 [0xb0ff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xfe1ff000 [0xfe1fffff].
Bus 10, device 9, function 0:
SCSI storage controller: QLogic Corp. QLA2200 (#3) (rev 5).
IRQ 24.
Master Capable. Latency=96. Min Gnt=64.
I/O at 0xb100 [0xb1ff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xfe1fe000 [0xfe1fefff].
Bus 13, device 6, function 0:
SCSI storage controller: QLogic Corp. QLA2200 (#4) (rev 5).
IRQ 21.
Master Capable. Latency=96. Min Gnt=64.
I/O at 0xd000 [0xd0ff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xfebff000 [0xfebfffff].
Bus 13, device 7, function 0:
SCSI storage controller: QLogic Corp. QLA2200 (#5) (rev 5).
IRQ 22.
Master Capable. Latency=96. Min Gnt=64.
I/O at 0xd100 [0xd1ff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xfebfe000 [0xfebfefff].
