Prior to buying mine I did some research and found that SAS support  
is probably a ways off, unfortunately.  So I purchased mine without  
disks in the hopes of booting and running from the RAID card....  
however, I missed the fact that it only has low-profile slots and the  
LSI cards are not available in low profile.

Are you planning to run a RAID card on yours?  If so, which one?  The  
only one that seems to have a chance of working for me is the Adaptec  
2230SLP (I need dual channel).
