Okay, thanks.

I see several of you guys say that the Megaraid as well as the LSI-card should 
work out of the box with CentOS.
My understanding is that the necessary driver modules are already built into 
the kernel.
Am I assuming this correctly that the card should therefore be seen at install 
with no tweaking?

In any case, I sent the thing back to the dealer yesterday. Awaiting their 
testing results.
