Actually a brand new supermicro.  I haven't actually looked at the bios 
settings but my friend comes from a SUN background and might have 
over-configured though I thought it came with the OS installed.
    Also the Tolis Group engineer made some suggestions ( as I also did 
) that probably got the modules and system in this mess.  Seems bru 
doesn't like the newer SCSI host adapter drivers so an attempt was made 
to _down-grade_ to an older driver.

Interesting eh?  No _real_ ide drives involved that I know of.  It is a 
SATA/PATA system with the SCSI for the tape library.

   /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 is /
   /dev/sda1 is /boot

I might have to get in front of the console.  Or at the very least have 
him got back to factory/supplier default settings and possibly back down 
to an older kernel ( FC3? ).

Thanks for the input.  It's got me thinking some more.
