My Machine has Dual R4400/200's, looking to replace the board with Quad
R4400/200's or Dual R8000/90's or Quad R10K/195's as soon as
time/money/availability permit. The Board I have has only 2 sockets, so If
I can find a dual R4400/200 board with 4 sockets, I plan to cobble together
a quad from both.

My IO4 is p/n 030-0646-107, without either SCSI mezanine board, I'm looking
for one, (or an IO4 with one attatched) But I cannot tell you if this one
supports IP25 w/ R10K's or not...
