Hello, Nicolas,

Check out the /proc/megaraid directory tree.  If it exists, the plugin
should work.  No rebooting required to find out, and since it only reads
from this area, it shouldn't take the server out of service at all.

Note the use of the "S" word:  "shouldn't".  YMMV

It is indeed included, but I wounder if my perc2 would be supported,
and I can't take that server down for testing...

But for now, I can't use it, only one server I have is running a rhel 3

clone (tao linux), and it's using megaraid (not 2) driver. I'm not sure
the controler I have in this particular machine (a perc2/dc) is
supported by 
  RHEL3 U3 ships with both drivers.  See this document for more

  I assume that tao includes the same kernel.
