OWC has the Apple/Adaptec 3940U2B for $25 right now, but states:
"(OS 8.x - 9.2.2 Compatible; Not compatible with Mac OS X 10.2)".

However, MacResQ claims: " MacResQ's own testing has found that 
as long as the Adaptec card is updated to firmware v1.2, it will work 
fine under OS 9 and OS X 10.1.5."

Anyone using one of these in a 10.2 box?
