Maybe it depends on you you end up talking to. We recently had a PERC 4e/Di go bad in one of our PE2800s. Dell sent us a new motherboard same day and we replaced it ourselves in 2 hours (took so long only because we had never done it before). It did ship with an out-of-date BIOS, though, so it took a while to flash everything up. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
