I find no virus boot detection options in the bios on this machine (I have seen it on our workstation machines, so I know what you are talking about)
Just to confirm that the raid is working (since I did add drives and rebuild it all since it was last used) I just began another Netware install, and it is happily going along, created a dos partition and formatted it. Next possibility?
