My company used a Fortra RAID setup.  We bought it from Microway
(  RAID5 with 10 36GB HD's, and controller.  Linux
identified it as a sdb device (SCSI bus device).  Then I ran ext3 with
journaling on it.

Works beautifully.

Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but
they can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake.
