Well, I've got a Mylex EISA RAID that would probably have a
better chance of working. :) This machine has no PCI bus,
but has EISA and GIO64... Even if it did have the bus for it,
though, there would be the problem of finding an IRIX driver
for that board. IRIX supported hardware isn't exactly

Anyway, shouldn't a decent RAID allow you to select the mode
so that it only does striping ?
