On the upside, 250Mb/sec is still much faster than the NFS mounts I use 
at home over 10Mb ethernet... probably close to the speed I'd see out of 
100Mb ethernet NFS mounts, even...

As for the array, 'dd' is still chewing on the 146G drive. No errors 
yet, but no count of blocks either. I ran it with 'time' in front of it 
just for grins.
