huh? Both me and Mark relied almost identically. Pointing out that the 
controller (motherboard SATA or add-on raid-controller) is what you have to 
be careful about, SATA or SATAII drives makes very little difference from a 
compatibility point of view.

That said, SATA is very suitable for a beowulf cluster.
