> You may want to have a look at nuonce.net - they have taken the open-sourced "Blue Quartz" Cobalt GUI and slipped CentOS underneath it.  ISO's at www.nuonce.net, somewhere.  Includes the "RAID tools" that monitor the health of the RAID setup, etc.

I did see that... not really what I'm going to run on it yet.
I tried dropping a AMI MegaRAID i4 in it to see if it looked like
it could boot from the BIOS of PCI card like in a PCI... but it
looks like it just ignored it's presence.

Ideally I wanted to use the MegaRAID i4 and two mirrored 250G
drives.... then it would be all self contained.

I wonder if any 3rd party ATA cards that can do LBA48 would be
seen by the PROM on a Raq ?  Unfortunately I'm thinking not...

As for OS... thought I'd try the 550 one 1st... but I'm looking
into others...  a BSD on it might be nice... I know NetBSD has
support for the MIPS racks... wonder if NetBSD would install
onto a Raq 3i?
