Adaptec/ATTO SCSI enquiry

Is anyone out there using either the Adaptec 3940 SCSI card or the Atto
Express double SCSI card with the new B&W G3s ?

We're looking at purchasing Digidesign's Pro Tools ToolBox system to run on
new Mac G3s with Akai CD3000XLs+MESA II, also supporting Hyperprism
plug-ins and Logic Audio Platinum 4.0.

We'll be using double SCSI cards for each of the G3s since we're using the
third PCI slot on the G3s for a video card to run second monitors (i.e.
slot one for Digidesign's Audiomedia III card, slot two for a wide+double
SCSI, slot three for the video card). There are conflicting reports from
various sources as to the ability of MESA to operate over Adaptec and/or
ATTO double SCSI cards, whilst Digidesign only recommend the Atto Express

Is anyone successfully running a set-up similar to this ?

Any advice, suggestions, secret clues etc.. would be most welcome,
