I meant that the more layers you remove, the less layers there are
that can tell ZFS something that's not true. I guess ZFS would still
catch those errors in most cases - it would still be a pain to deal
with needless errors. Also I like to do what the manual says, and the
manual says avoid abstraction layers :)
Harry, Richard is probably right. There are plenty of boards with
nVidia or Intel SATA that should work fine. Search for 'opensolaris
hcl' (hardware compatibility list) - there are about 400+ mobos listed
there that are reported to work.
