I intended to use the machine as dedicated NFS Server with software
RAID (FreeBSD/vinum). But the main board does not work reliable. It
gets memory errors. I swaped all SIMMs and even the cache chips, but
the porblem persists. PeeCee crap...
I am now looking for an EISA Alpha to reuse the two Adaptecs and the
2MB ATI Mach64 EISA card with NetBSD...
