   Good point. Right now I'm thinking of dropping an HBA and using space
on the new SAN to store the data files; the program files will probably
go on the (mirrored) internal disks.
   They're "only" development servers, and so don't need too much space,
but having the data on the SAN is nice for sooo many reasons. :7)
   Thanks for your thoughts, gents.
