    SubjectRe: 3 ultra100 controllers

    Well Jeff will need to verify, but iirc many of those boxes he build and
    sold power "". I got a charge knowing that factoid, when
    everyone was slamming the reliablity and strenghts of ATA servers.

    Also there were select systems that may have been VIA but they were hand
    picked boards.

    Anyways, Jeff will need to comment on this part. However I know he has
    shipped with 4 and maybe even 5 cards in a box that ran fine and stable.
