I actually have the same 3Ware card in another computer, but it keeps having 
problems and shutting down. I keep meaning to find out what's going on but 
am too busy to hunt it down right now. Might be a BIOS thing ...

But it's good to know you're not having troubles at all! What driver are you 
using? And kernel? And does it make any difference which distribution? I 
thought it was a kernel thing, but some manufacturers say they only support 
certain distributions ... not sure what that means ...
