RAID on the cheap!

Howdy paaadna's,

I recently took notice of a dumping of IBM ServeRaid cards on Ebay.

Basically $10 bucks gets you a 3-channel SCSI card with built in RAID.
4MB of cards and supports basic RAID 0,1,5.  I have it working just
great with my RH72 server at home.

IBM has a support CD with a GUI for those so inclined, but everything
is also manageable from CLI with ipssend.

Cool stuff for those wanting enterprise quality stuff on the cheap.
