I'm confused. This says "Uses state of the art Fusion-MPT interface,  
providing support for FC, SCSI, SAS, and RAID devices with a single  
binary image."
I wasn't looking for FC, SCSI, SAS, or RAID :).

Well, I wouldn't mind finding a SAS card (just because it can do  
SATA; not because I need SAS or have any intention of buying SAS  
drives), but it would also have to be cheap. Like, less than $50 at  
the most. $30 would be nicer. Hey, I'm putting it in an Ultra 5,  
which will probably cost half that for the whole thing.
