Interesting comment Adaptec - I had thought they were well supported in OBSD!
**ARE** there any RAID5 controllers that will inter-operate with OBSD?
Wan't Theo hot on Adaptec earlier this year, or was it Intel?
It would be **REALLY** nice to have a RAID5 machine with a
controller/driver capable of communicating array status. It's somewhat
frustrating to reboot a server with a Knoppix disk just to rebuild an array
(though it works just fine for 3Ware).
