Hi everyone,

I just wanted to say thanks to dell for this stuff:

I use a Dell XPS 210 (4gb RAM, Core 2 stuff) under RHEL4 and your dkms 
saved my day.. :) I'm now using this 750Gb minipartner firewire HD just 
fine under RHEL4 on my XPS 210 (the HD serves as an external storage 
device under VxVM/VxFS):

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars - on stars where no human race is
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.       - Robert Frost
