Is there any tricks to setting up a newer controller with the RAID still
in tact or did you just start from scratch with each newer controller? One
of the options I'm considering is getting a newer SCSI controller, but I
don't want to have to do a dump | restore on it if I can get around it.
(Plus the less down time, the better.)

Compiling the non-SMP kernel now. I'll install it and boot it on the next
crash or late tonight whichever happens first. I haven't had any SMP
problems yet on these 1850Rs, but as I mentioned before I haven't run any
as hard as this one yet. Thanks for the suggestion.
