I was curious if there have been any updates on any of the issues
surrounding the PE2850 and Ubuntu. I admit I am a noob to linux so
compiling a kernel, etc, is going to be difficult if this becomes
necessary. Essentially, my goal is to install Ubuntu 6.06 server on a
PE 2850 which has a split backplane Perc 4/DC(same as Perc 4e??). On
the first channel, it's configured as a raid 1 and the second as a raid
5. I want to the boot and swp partitions to exist on the raid 1 and the
file partition to exist on the raid 5. Any help/advice would be
appreciated. thanks!
