No raid involved Ric, just 3 drives in a hot swap cage, tigerdirect.com 
did have them, about a $70 bill when I bought this one after Jim showed 
me that was what he was using in all his new builds at the tv station.

Here, 	sda is the drive I am booted from, 
	sdb is a previous install in case I need something that wasn't copied 
	sdc is the virtual tape drive, playing like its 30 big backup tapes for 
amanda, the "Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver", the 
backup program.

If I Recall Correctly, available up to 6 drives wide in case you want a 
boot drive and a 5 drive raid.  Truely excellent drive cooling too.  
Mine stay under 100F full time.

If you'd like one, I suggest getting it now as the advent of Solid State 
Drives is probably making them obsolete in the Chinese makers view.

But the hot swap has never been tested, I always power down.
