Well that crash totally destoryed the array. / is missing
loads of files including /etc and most of /lib so
its a full reinstall time. I'd like to get 6.1 working
but I may have to go back to something else like 5.4
if in fact that actually works, it may be that the machine
has just not been under this type of load before.

Soren or anyone anyone else got any ideas?

N.B. I've a second machine which also died doing
the same rsync so I'm fairly sure its just specific
to the array setup + controller and not faulty hardware
in anyway.
