OK, I've gotten the x86_64 CentOS 4.3 DVD downloaded now so I'll have 
another go at it.  I managed to find a "driver disk" from Supermicro's 
ftp server for RHEL4 so I'm hoping that will fix the problem.  According 
to a few posts I found in various forums, the driver I'm after seems to 
be "sata_svw".  Hopefully, that does it.  Otherwise, I guess it's time 
so scrounge up some extra 3ware cards instead.  :-)
