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.
