I am not using RH, but using SuSE 7.3 and kernel 2.4.16, I have been using 3 
SCSI disks in RAID 5 with ReiserFS and LVM. The PE2550 has been in production 
since the beginning of the year, and I am pleased with the results. I have 
already made adjustments to volume sizes on a number of occasions, and some 
operations can be done on a live system.
