  Here is a link to the mysql benchmarks I was talking about.  If you can run
them using the 3ware raid and the other raid, I would be interested to see what
sort of results you get.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

  These are my personal benchmarks I use here, but I added a file to try to walk
you through stuff and in case you want to share them with anyone else, etc.  If
you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.  

Take care!
