Its interesting, I am presently attending a conference in NYC and in one of the tables I saw the redhat vendor. My first question to them was " What do you think about centos", they reply "You are using a distribution without support and that is prompt to failure..." I don't think this is an accurate statement is it? Anyway to make the story short, they keep telling how bad centos is for our datacenter and that I should consider adopting redhat which is more "robust", offers "virtualization" and nearly real-time support for its customers. I didn't go the extra mile to ask for pricing but would appreciate* your input about what they said about centos. Lisandro

I have been having nightmares getting this card working from an OS iso, it appears that the card is very new and the drivers have not been integrated into the distributions or kernel. The alternative is to load the driver via console using any of the modules supply by LSI. Thank you again Timo for your guidance. Lisandro
Ah, and welcome to the world of proprietary drivers. This is something
that the OpenBSD guys do right: They ignore them.
