Hmm. You're right. It's on this page -
but I couldn't find it by browsing the USB or Firewire category. It  
also mentions an Addonics "USB2.0/FireWire/Serial ATA Host  
Controller", and says that it is supported under Solaris 10/sparc. If  
all of those things work (and it's not just one of the three  
functions that's supported), then that's almost everything I need in  
a single card. Sweet.

Unfortunately, I don't need performance, just cheap.
