The simplest solution for people running non-Dell supported (or even
non-fully-Dell supported) Linux distributions would be to use afacli for
PERC 3/Di & CERC SATA cards
&releaseid=R50594&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=59856) or MegaMgr/DellMgr
for pretty much all the other Dell SCSI RAID cards
&releaseid=R71524&formatcnt=2&fileid=92846). I'm not really sure about
other tools for the PERC 5's since to be perfectly honest I've never run
anything but OMSA with these.

How would you do that from Debian Sarge for example?
