    Greetings all. I'm new to the mailing list. Hope to get to know many 
of you. I'll jump right in with a recent project. I have a machine with 
RHEL WS 3 - Taroon; plus dual boot to Win 2000 Pro. The RAID card is 
Adaptec's 2400A w/128 megs cache, running RAID 10 on 4 WD's. I want to 
migrate to 5.2 Centos and wipe the NTFS partition. I have the 5.2 Centos 
DVD. Anyone see any problems, special preparation needed, whatever, to 
accomplish the migration? The RAID uses dpt_i2o drivers. The NVidia card 
can get drivers from their website, if need be to support full 
functionality. Please advise with any cautions, considerations, you may 
care to give. Thanks in advance.
