Hi all

I bought a Highpoint Rocketraid 1542 4 port card some time ago. (ebay) Rick warned me that they were cheap chinese and virtually unsupported. However the mac this was for is The Great Old One™ (B&W g3) to serve music to my home network. Not mission critical you might say. Also total cost shipped was under 15$

Anyway I finally got around to installing it and it works as advertised. The last driver for this very old card was a 10.3 rated driver but it works fine in 10.4.10. It's not bootable but I knew that going in. The only gotcha I had was that the 2 external ports use a proprietary connector which is unavailable now making the card essentially a 2 port card
