This was a while back - it may have changed. I wanted to be able to
boot, and *then* mess with my RAID if it was fucked up. At the time,
Linux could do this (I used the mdadm toolset). NetBSD had to mess
with failed a RAID in the middle of the boot sequence.
As for the AXe, there was no reason that I couldn't use SPARC64, but
I needed more than 3 PCI slots :).
