I've installed RHEL 4 on several IBM eSeries servers with ServeRaid
controllers and I despise them.  They fail too often and often don't
tell you that they are having problems until it is too late.  My
suggestion is to use Linux software for your RAID array, and bypass the
ServeRaid controller entirely.
