Does this also apply to 2850s also?  And is the version listed in the email below the version we should be on?

Please upgrade the system and raid bios to the newest versions if not 
already. There are some timing issue fixes in the newest versions that 
could address this problem:

SCSI RAID: LSI Logic PERC 4e/Si, Firmware, Multi Language, PowerEdge 
1850, v.516A, A01 (02/03/2005)

"1. Increased memory timing margins to address the following potential 
symptoms: System hangs during operating system installs or other heavy 
I/O, Windows Blue Screens referencing "Kernel Data Inpage Errors" or 
Linux Megaraid timeouts/errors."
