does your 2650 use the built in hardware raid (aacraid).  if so, maybe the
openmosix kernel wasn't compiled to support that.

the megaraid message appears to be because your system thinks that you
have a megaraid controller installed (do you?) but it cannot see it
when it boots.  the megaraid controllers are external cards, usually
a dell PERC2 or PERC3
