I guess since I'm the de facto Network Server guru ... :-)

The RAID card only works with the Apple-branded AIX for the ANS, making it
effectively worthless for other PCI PowerMacs and the vast majority of other
Network Servers which now probably run LinuxPPC. It's a hardware RAID
device and supposedly it's blindingly fast. I just don't have enough SCSI
interconnect boards or drives in mine to make it worthwhile at the moment.
