Hi, folks,

   Got an old HP box with a P800 Smart Array controller. The HP RAID box
plugged into it's failing, and we got a new JetStor. Anyone know if we
can just plug the JetStor in and set it to passthrough, or if we have
to use the P800's firmware to set up the RAID, or other gotchas?

I *think* we could use the RAID boxes firmware to build the RAID, but last
resort would be passthrough, and Linux RAID.
