I should also mention that if I attempt to remove any of the drives while the
card is in a hung state, the entire machine locks up with the keyboard LEDs
blinking.

This does seem to be a rather serious error.

If there is more I can do to help track down the problems, please let me know.
I really need to get this to work (my current array is FULL, and may be
showing signs of failure) as soon as possible.

I can pretty much wipe and reinstall everything at any point on this machine,
update/install new kernels, etc. I just don't have a null modem cable atm to
hook up a serial console to capture the errors on OOPSes.

Thanks.
