That card seems a bit slow.

It says "80 MB/s burst data rate"

People get 80 MB/s burst with a single 7200 RPM drive..

As far as setting them up.

Put the SCSI card in, plug the drives into the SCSI card, run the BIOS utility on the SCSI card. You'll also need a floppy to install the drivers.

whats that metal box?
and the drive pictured looks to be a 80pin drive
meaning it wont work without a hotswap bay shin-dig but im guessing thats what the metal box is for
any who
you need to set your mobo's bios to look for add-in cards in the boot menu
then when it restars after you save the settings look for the key combination to access the scsi config seeing as the card has built-in memory its probly raid capable its fairly ez to set up that
and you need to find windows drivers for that card if you want to use it...
and if you have anymore of them 80pin hardrives i could use some
