PowerEdge 1850 + debian sarge + EMC AX100

When I was talking to Dell about a SAN they claimed that the iSCSI was only supported by Windows. Linux distros (read RedHat) was not supported. And they wouldn't sell me the larger model, CX300 or something, as I'm using Debian and they can't give support on that which has to be included when buying one of those, puh!

Anyway this was what Frederic Perrouin answered me when I asked the list about powerpath on debian:

"If you want you can use md with mdadm package to make same thing like powerpath emc.
Mdadm can make array for RAID, but can make multipath too."
