I've got one of the above the chip is definitely a HPT370. I flashed the
firmware with the firmware from the highpoint site, and it now behaves
like the highpoint one. Unfortunately I did not get any further with the
installation as the Unit requires a later version of the pci bus than
the machine that I had originally intended to deploy it with. I'd wager
a beer that it would work.
BTW I've got the same chip working on an IWILL branded board in another
machine, running RH7.1, but that was using the highpoint drivers.
