I do not want to try it on our server, but I have a similar mainboard
and just bought a 160GB harddisk to try it on another computer.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work well. The hard disk only gives
20MB/s on sequential read (Seagate Baraccuda 160GB should be faster,
right?), and hdparm -I /dev/hde completely locks up the whole computer -
no console message at all, only hard reset helps. I need to get this
running before I can try kernel patches for the LBA48 stuff.

By the way: That computer reports a
00:11.0 RAID bus controller: Promise Technology, Inc. 20265 (rev 02)
while the server has a
00:11.0 Unknown mass storage controller: Promise Technology, Inc. 20265 (rev 02)

(Numeric Class IDs are 0104 and respectively 0180, vendor and device
codes are the same on both computers)

Do you think this will make any difference? IIRC, the FastTrack series
has some RAID features, but you can safely ignore them and use it
just as a simple ATA100 controller.
