Hi Florian,

I gave that a try and it worked perfectly; the system comes right up and 
sees all my Marvell controllers and disks. I remember reading about the 
Highpoint driver issue of grabbing onto some non-Highpoint Marvell based 
controllers but for some reason thought it was fixed in the STABLE images 
that I was using (guess not!). Now off to play with ZFS...

Thanks so much!
