I feel a little odd pointing this out on Rescue, but it's conceivable
that people could be sticking these in rescue-worthy systems. The LSI
cards should have OpenFirmware on them, right?
PERC 2 and PERC 3 were Adaptec. They used Linux's "aacraid" driver.
PERC 4 and PERC 5 series are LSI, and depending upon the particular
model, use either the "megaraid" or "fusion-mpt" drivers.
