Now that its confirmed that it's a firmware crash... What can I do about
Could it be the driver? or the drives giving an unexpected response?
Can HP/Compaq help me?
Am I SOL?
I hope it's not the last thing, but I guess it is.

Yep, thats what a firmware lockup looks like.
You can confirm this by looking at the pretty lights on the card and
comparing the pre and post crash state.
