I have installed FreeBSD 6.2 and have no issues with using multiple RAID
groups with the Dell 2950 internal disks.

Now that 6.2 release is imminent and bce(4) has been patched to the
where it is relatively stable, we're nearing the point where we can
finally put Dell PowerEdge 1950s/2950s into production.
However the lack of a MFI CLI management utility is still a grave
Without it, there is no way to proactively monitor the RAID controller
failed components (aside from sitting there 24/7/365 and waiting for a
blue light to go amber)
