    Will scsi card play nice


    OK well i use gentoo. But i recently came across some nice scsi HDD's which i would like to implement as my new system drives. I am going to get a PCI scsi card and configure a software raid 0. Now my qustion is will the card be compatible with linux, i am not listing a card, because frankly i dont care which card, i guess my question is which cards would be supported. Gentoo doesnt have a hardware compatiibility list that i am aware of. And most cards say that they support RH 8/9 but i am wondering if they will support mine.

    Second once i get this card, providing it should work, the only thing i will have to do is to compile the needed scsi drivers into my kernel correct, and maybe update the BIOS stuff. Or am i missing something. Thanks for the help in advance i really want to get this working soon because DOOM3 is coming out tomoorow and the linux binary should follow shortly. Fast raid0 + doom3 = lots of fun at leat for me anyway.
