Hello all,

I've recently purchased an Areca ARC-1120 PCI-X raid controller
and was wondering what the status of drivers were for this
card.  I've tried the latest preview tag but was unable to find
anything that remotely appeared to be a driver.  If someone could
point me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it. I did find in
the mail archive something about the driver being ported, but that
was all there was. I would love to see just how well this card and
a few 320gb drives can perform under DFly.
Thanks in advance,

It was announced in 2003, has been favorably reviewed, uses an Intel CPU and 
Marvel controller chipset:

so... has at least Loonix & FreeBSD drivers.

Have you tried it with DFLY?
