I'd say you have found the best answer. I spent considerable time looking and 
somebody here on the list pointed out the SuperMicro board. I've not found a 
better solution. I just wanted to point out that you should not expect the 
performance listed for a 133Mhz. slot if you use a pair of them.

I didn't find any standard PCI cards that were more than 4 drives.
