Find an attack cat to keep me away?  :)

You're going to want to put 6.5.latest on them, obviously, They only
take 1" high SCA drives, and there's only one drive bay - as opposed to
the R5k units that have two.  Video capture on the R10k-based O2s has
been shown to be problematic by some people.  Apparently frames are
dropped for some reason.  I can't recall specifics.

Other than that, they're really nice systems.
