I could use these too, have some 8500's and 9500S's 12 port that it would be nice to use. Is it possible to just build the modules and add them to a nanoboot image? (I need x86, not 64-bit, using an older supermicro 16 drive case with the older intel xeon 686's. I'd replace the mobo if I have to, but I'd rather not, since I have a slew of the 3ware raid cards... I'm a freebsd guy, but I think I could work my way through the linux kernel buildling stuff.
