SubjectRe: 2T for i386

The latest firmware for the 3ware 5000 family of controllers -
Escalade 5.1 - allows for hotswap using standard ide removable
drive bays. I was already using ide removable drive bays to reduce
downtime in case i needed to do maintenance, but now the worry
is gone if it works as they advertise. Check the pdf included with
the drivers for Linux for more information.
