One of our sites got a Dell server 400 with a raid which I thought was the aac and we could not install on it. Finally he took it out and put in an Adaptec SCSI and it all worked fine. But, maybe it was really a different raid controller. I don't have it here to look at now. Of course, I suppose the raid controller could have been DOA hardware. ////jerry > -------------------------------------- > Greg Barniskis <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Library Interchange Network (LINK) > South Central Library System (SCLS) > (608) 266-6348 www.scls.lib.wi.us > _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
