direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

But you have tested the raid-0 doing a lot more?

Do you have tested both nodes with iperf?

How much its the performance?

This card have a problem, it's not fault tolerant, and that it's one 
advantage to Quad NIC Gbit Ethernet.

With one Gbit ethernet, you should get about 120MB/sec, at least i get 
it. You are mostly doing one Gbit.
