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.
