Greetings folks,

I'm currently redoing my home server as one of the hard drives in my
RAID-1 array went down and I'm going to replace the lot of it with a
3Ware Escalade 9500S RAID capable card and four Seagate 200GB SATA
drives.  These drives are supposedly the coolest and quietest SATA
drives available (better than the Maxtors I had anyway) and the capacity
upgrade on the server is worth the $$$ at this point.  I'm planning on
running them in RAID-5 for maximum disk space and performance.

Are there any 3Ware Escalade/SATA issues I should be aware of when
building this new server utilizing CentOS-3?  The card was supposedly
supported under RH9, so I figured RHEL3 (or clones) would be fine.

Thanks in advance for the feedback,

- --Shawn
