Ahhh... I admit I haven't actually *tried* it yet (didn't want to break the
seal on the packaging in case I was to return it). Digging around references
on the web found only mention of 64-bit PCI, so I figured it wouldn't be
happy in a 32-bit slot. Also, I wonder if there are any components on the
motherboard that will interfere with card fingers just hanging out there..
I'll give it a shot tonight.

7500-4LP. It's the low-profile card, so only the four obligatory ports are
there, no solder pads.
On the subject of IDE vs. SCSI (let's please not make this a war), the goal is
not speed but mass storage with some protection at a cheap price. I'm doing
3 x 120GB 7200 8MB.
Hey, anyone know what this four-pin header on the card does? Activity LEDs?
The case that this is going in has a buttload of drive indicator LEDs on it,
so why not use them?
