SmartRaid2 from Compaq (the drivers were supposed to be in Linux
provided directly by compaq). Never saw so many manuals and CDs and
Floppies and paper in general and DUMB program for installing the RAID!
Previously I had a DTP 2144UW: no problems. unfortunatly the server
burned 2 disks up 3 months ago after 1 1/5 years of work!

I got 128Mb on a PII 300 (see specs of the Proliant 3000).
It costed only 800 bucks but I wasted more time that I have forecasted
on this machine.... I wonder why people keep buying brand named

If it works do not touch it!

Let me know if you need more info.

Anybody had USB usb-to-eth hub working on any Linux machine?
