You could also run:
[root]# scsi_info /dev/sda
SCSI_ID="0,0,0"
MODEL="SEAGATE ST336704LC"
FW_REV="0004"

This is a U160 scsi controller and not a raid controller.

and the like. Looks like the answer is no. Very strange I'm sure I've
pulled disc info off of RH6.2 with an ICP vortex controller. I don't
like the idea of bringing the machines down to the bios to get this
information so I guess I'll see what I can dig up from Dell using my
serial numbers.
