        Dear James:

        I personally try to use Buslogic/Mylex because the cards are well
supported under LINUX.  Another possibility is an NCR/Symbios Logic
chipset controller.  These are usually the cheapest, and normally work
fine under LINUX.  However, you should check out any card you want to buy
on the web first.
