Personally, I could seriously use one with good support for those crusty
old megaraid controllers that doesn't involve the use of a floppy drive, I
have an old PE6450 that I can't seem to get anything useful to run on, and
it's old internal FDD is dead, and grafting a fresh one in didn't even 
work after a lot of hassle/time spent.  In general, as wide as possible 
of driver
support, possibly selectable in the install process, or with a decently 
workaround to enable/disable would be the shizzle.
