I mean it's a PCI Bus machine (With PCI-X) so any card that has drivers 
for your given OS will "work".

The major caveat is that there are no SATA cards that SRM will boot from.

My DS20, however has a boot partition on IDE->CFCard Adapter, (which SRM 
knows how to boot from), and then load the OS from the 3ware 8xxx Raid 

I'm running Gentoo Linux, but I have to imagine that NetBSD would 
function in a similar way.
