Yes, I am (or was) using a 3ware controller, since the on board sata
controller is a marvell one, and the native linux drivers seem flaky as
can be. I've only had the 3ware card for about a week, and don't believe I
have written about it. I was going to ask on this list about the MCE,
since I don't know of a better list for asking questions about big opteron
