Greetings. For FBSD 6.1 on old Compaq DL320 and 1850R machines:
1. Is there a way to access the system BIOS, either at boot time or
(preferably) from within FBSD? I'm specifically interested in seeing
what the system's hardware clock is set to.
2. Is there a way to monitor the Compaq Smart Array RAID controllers and
disks attached to them from within FBSD?
Smartmontools is great for monitoring disk health, but no good with
RAID. I don't have Compaq RAID CDs for all the machines in question, and
in any event would prefer to monitor disks from within FBSD if possible.
