    Non-RAID SATA card

    Hi All,
    I'm upgrading my home NAS, and I'm after a basic SATA card. Ideally 6-8 ports. It doesn't have to do hardware RAID, as I'll be doing Linux softraid (in case the mobo goes pop). Can anyone recommend anything?

    Cheers...

    best solution would be one of these

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Lycom...Q-PC-MAC-Linux

    by default it will just show the non raided drives

    and 2 of these

    they should get you started

    Re: Non-RAID SATA card

    Hmm. I already have 6 SATA headers on the motherboard, so 2 of those would be groovy. Now to see if they're supported by OpenFiler.....
