Hi Javier

Stick with the Symbios ones either 875 or 876. The Adaptec do not have
drivers. I use the Compaq single channel version (external connection
only) and it works fine. There is also an IBM version which works 100%
as the Sun card. As for dual channel, if you want 64bit stuff go with
the Sun only version, if you do not need that go with the generic one
for cost saving.
