It's my understanding that Advansys has been supporting linux almost
from the beginning, and that Adaptec only recently started supporting
linux by releasing the programming info for the drivers. Seems to me
that Advansys would be a better card. Certainly, they're about half
the cost of Adaptec and seem to be just as good.
