I wonder if you could route a cable from one of the 64-bit PCI slots to
the internal SCA backplane?

It's just nice to use the internal drives since most of my servers don't
need tons of storage space.  Usually 36GB drives are enough.  The
projects I have which require more... sadly I've had to back burner them
for the time being.

Maybe one of these days we'll get support for 64-bit PCI SATA
controllers on the Uxx systems.
