I have a new 250g drive for my B&W g3. Turns out there's a 180g or so limit on the B&Ws though. So I need a new card. What's a cheep one that works on ppc linux?

Thanks!

I think you are limited to the cards available for Mac's only. I've tried using regular pc sata card on G4 but to no avail. In my experience most nics, usb, firewire cards work with Mac no problem, but I had problems with Sata cards, I think it might just have to do with boot rom though. Cause I had similar problems with my scsi card, but was able to download Mac version of the card's bios. Check on the net any card that supports Mac bios should be ok.
