I am pretty sure this was done already as that was what I had been
told, and I remember seeing on the screen during the bootup messages
about the drives being initialized and RAID5 working ok. But its been
a while since I've been working with hardware issues so I will double
check this tomorrow and show you the config.

So is it so that the LSI 1068E Controller *should* be supported by
megaraid_sas driver and the net install should use it without any
driver disk needed?
