Derek,

In the server I currently have three 376595-001 drives (146 GB serial
SCSI) and three 432146-001 drives (300 GB serial SCSI).  These drives are
configured as a single drive in a RAID 5 configuration.

I did not specify any geometry during the installation.

I have the hard drive configured as a single partition with the
appropriate lables (/, /var, /usr, /tmp and a swap area).

Thanks for your help.
