Compaq HBAs under linux

I have some of the storageworks 64bit/66mhz fibre hbas that compaq made. It's my understanding that they have excellent linux support, but I'm curious to see if I can get any direct testmonials of experience from some others who've used them.

Hi,

The main Compaq HBA is FCA 2101, which is made by Emulex (model LP952).

Emulex has an excellent support for Linux :

Good luck.

Hrm. Ok, I don't have that designation anywhere, so just to be sure, my HBAs were purchased for use with the RA4100 raid boxes, and have a cpq part# of 120188-821.
