      Well, I know you can do a 'software RAID', and I don't think that the MB
      is that important (as long as Linux knows it). However, with IDE, you
      are limited to 4 devices. And I assume that one of these will be a
      CD-ROM? That leaves you with 3. Unless you want to forgo CD-ROM
      support, and use this as a reliable file storage system?



      Look into the A-Bit boards the later kernels support them. If memory serves you can have 4 ide plus use the raid and use an adapter if you don't have the newest types of drives. It gives a total of 12 ide then!

      Good hunting, Joan
