Very cool!  Thanks so much.  The script for creating the /dev/ataraid
device files is very appreciated.

This makes me think I should clarify something here, however: I'm
wanting to do hardware RAID, not software RAID.  I'm assuming because
we are talking about RAID cards (vs. IDE cards) that this is assumed
but possibly it is not.  On the Red Hat machine that I set up to do
hardware RAID'ing with a Promise card (using Promise's instructions and
driver), the system isn't RAID'ing at all.  It simply sees the RAID
array as a scsi device.

I wanting to do the same on a Debian system if possible.
