Hi, Folks :)
Frigid here in NY !! Longest cold snap since 1890 -- looks like war on
the horizon -- probably be pretty quick -- Saddam hottails it to
Sudan -- or some such. Market should climb out of the present hole --
leaving the likes of us to CPR the global economy.
My big question of the day:
Will LinuxBIOS be able to support several IDE cards ?? I actually used
to have a PCI IDE harddrive controller. These days one would by the
3ware (linux friendly) mirroring card.
For a consumer portal and home support system, this would be
fantastic -- passing down the savings on 200GB disks that are only
slightly more expensive than 20GB disks.
