I recently recieved 3 Precision 650n systems ordered with the add-in 
PERC320 controller and a pair of 146GB drives.  Each system came in with 
RHEL3 WS preinstalled however upon turning the system on after unboxing 
each one was very slow.  I finally figured out that the problem was that 
the RAID group was rebuilding itself.  Is the factory not allowing this 
process to complete?  It seems as though this is a pretty significant 
thing to test to make sure the system passes the initial diagnostics.
