That sounds nice, but I don't see a RAID-5 controller with a hotswap chassis in my future. ;)
I should have mentioned, the down time is not the issue. It doesn't matter if the machine is down for weeks. I just don't want to have to spend more time than is absolutely required to bring the machine back up.

What you really want is a Raid-5 controller with a hotswap chassis for your drives. 3Ware makes excellent hardware with linux source drivers as well. It's expensive, but if you want true single-drive-failure-zero-downtime operation, it's the way to go, IMHO. Raid5 has saved my butt on more than one occasion. E
