Ok, as everyone now comes up with their wishes, here are my quick ones:
* I want to be able to keep the board for a while, by that I feel that
some expandability is mandatory.
The CPU will be limited from the start to a 3081 at best, nothing to
do here. But I feel that limiting memory to 64MB max is not a good
idea. That means 32 SIMM sockets, right? Even 128MB may be too
little after a while, it's sad that the 3730 does not support > 4MB DRAM.
But I think I can live with the thought of max 128MB.
* If there will be ISA then DMA devices should be on the main board because
of the 16MB addressing limit of the ISA bus, i.e. SCSI should be
on the main board (but almost everyone has settled on this anyway?).
This is just because I feel it is a pity to have to do a CPU copy
operation after the DMA, that's what DMA was invented for; to avoid
loading the CPU with the I/O. (I know a memcopy goes quite quick with
newer CPUs, and I can live with doing this for devices using DMA for
small small buffers :-)
Just my 0.02 whatever..
