    I Did

    I had a sonnet sata card and a raptor in my G4 MDD dual 867. The sata card causes a delay fof a few seconds at boot up, but once it's up and running it was a nice speed bump. Ben..

    Lightning fast G4 Raptor setup

    I have the G4 1,42 with the Raptor bootdrive. Best setup possible, this baby is lightning fast and smokes many G5s.
    Anyways, I dont understand why you have a delay?? There must be something wrong, it should boot up very fast. Maybe you have some wrong settings in Disk utility..
    I use a two channel Seritek card, which works perfect - I am very happy with it.
