    Ah, well all of them are Maxtor drives... One 6y250m0 and three 7y250m0
    drives. I'm using powermax on them right now. They all passed the quick
    test, and the full test results are forthcoming.

    Actually, I was backing up the array (cp from the array - 2 of 3 drives
    running - to a normal drive) when I read your response. Shortly
    thereafter, during the cp (perhaps after copying 100GB-120GB), I got a
    double fault. I've never gotten a double fault before, but I'm guessing
    it's quite a serious error. It totally locked up the machine, and it
    outputted two lines each with a double fault message, followed by a
    register dump.

    The saga continues...
