correct me if i am wrong, but i thought the tyan thunder had the dual
lan, scsi, and video on board and that the tyan tiger had none of
those.  the tiger appears to be going for just over $200 on pricewatch,
which is a nice savings over the thunder.

i've had great success with the tyan thunder board, but havent gotten a
tiger board yet.  i dont have the guts to put these athlons in a 1u
case, but the folks over at penguincomputing have made me at least
consider a 2u ;)



ps- here are some references......
