This is good to know - I've got a new Dell PowerEdge 2900 quad-core, 4GB 
RAM, 6*146Gb SAN disks on RAID-5 controller arriving in the next week or 
two as a new database server. Well, more like a database development 
machine - but it will host some non-production databases as well. Good 
to know Dell can be relied on these days, I was a bit concerned about 
that when purchasing sent me a copy invoice from Dell - particularly 
since I was originally told an IBM was on the way.

Good ol' purchasing, can always rely on them to change their minds last 
minute when they find a cheaper system.
