umm, we just got three 2550's in and when the RedHat install tries to
format a 70gig partition on one of them, it returns an error saying that
an error occurred while formatting the drive.  It then proceedes to
state the problem is serious and forces a reboot.  Is there a limit to
the partition size RH can handle or is something broke?

The machine has a 4disk raid 5 array containing the partition.
