This seems to be the suggestion for the Ultra 5 as well.  I don't seem to have any problems with my U5 in Solaris 10.  Is it just a non-Solaris thing?

Also, are there any more modern PCI-based controllers that would work with OFW to boot?  I've found that the U5 controller isn't the fastest thing in the world, but at least it's faster than the 10 MHz SCSI controller in my SS5.
