    I forgot to mention I will not be booting off of any of the SATA disks,
    so that should cover the BIOS issues by just ignoring them.

    I saw that message; I won't have the hardware until late next week, so
    I'll watch to see what happens with the snapshot/-testX situation by then.

    I'll have about three weeks to use the machine for "whatever" before I
    have to start preparing it for its real purpose, so if there's any
    stress tests or anything I else I can run that would be useful let me know.
