We are looking to implement a postgresql solution using dual opteron/8G 
RAM and LSI battery-backed scsi card (LSI MegaRAID 320-2X - 53C1030 
controller) RAID array. Are there any issues with this type of 
configuration?? Looking at the hardware Release notes I do not see any 
mention of this memory issue or what storage drivers are or are not
