A [dis]Satisfied Customer Writes:

As a matter of fact it is so stable now that it goes nowhere. It initializes
and justs sits. As a maater of fact, you can even hang your machine with it:
just build it as a NON-module, attach ANY device to an AHA2940W and your machine
Will never boot past the devices scan: Perfectly stable. No more crashes, no
more busy programs and noisy disks!
