  Not too funny really.  I remember it being
recommended in the Digi user list not to use onboard
promise controllers over the ATA/66 ones for best
  It is strange that the other kernels work well but
the audio one does not with my system.
  Then again, I've been having some BIOS troubles
  The onboard promise has its own BIOS and SCSI
emulation which I don't believe the ATA/66 controllers
