Yep.  I hit that -exact- -same- -blockade- with my Xeon box.  Neither
3ware nor Sun is inclined to support the other's products for some

FreeBSD 7, however, has excellent support for those devices, and I've
been very happy with it.  I don't get the virtualization stuff I wanted
to play with under Solaris, but I get an OS that talks to my storage.
