I have a customer who uses the following on a U5 to act as backup
Compaq 875 based SCSI card (you could of course use the X5010A, but more
Acard 7726 LVD/SE to IDE converters
Maxtor 300Gb IDE disk & Hitachi/IBM 180Gb disk
This combination is pretty rock solid, do not use the older Acard cards
as I have seen data corruptions with the 875 based cards.
So three of these onto a single card and use SVM should work fine.
All the best
