Which reminds me - you can get "megamgr" for linux to configure megaraids.
It looks just like the bios utility but with some things disabled. Needs
slang 0.<something>. I use 0.99.34, IIRC. As far as I'm concerned, it's
only useful for telling the controller to start rebuilding an array on
a failed-and-replaced disk, if the controller doesn't have the wit to
do it itself. :-)
