    Any reason you are not using the 2740/2W? That is the fastest Adaptec card you can get for an EISA system. It supports wide speeds up to 20MB/s. I have one in the Step Megacube and it works...

    The /OX switch generates DOS Boot Disks (three of them) to run the CD as the NT 4.0 CD is not bootable (although apparently can be hacked to be bootable using the Win2K boot loader).
