RE: [linux-lvm] LVM on SATA/PATA disks



For linux, I prefer anything 3ware makes for SATA or PATA.  I have not
been happy with promise boards.  The newer higher end boards are
expensive, but you can buy the older boards for significantly less.
With the 3ware boards you could even avoid having to use lvm since they
have raid included.
