Hardware raid is OS independent, _but_ you need to configure it
first.  The Sun HW Raids (A1000/A3500) come with a program: Raid
Manager which will do this.  This program will run under Windows NT
and Solaris.  I don't know if they have something for SPARC/Linux.  
Perhaps Ben knows what they did with the debian machine that Sun
donated as I believe it has hardware raid.
