Anyone using this combination?  I'm offered a setup like this for a high IO 
system (log server) and would just like to make sure that FreeBSD will see 
the Raid 5 array properly.

Does FreeBSD see the remove-disk/add-disk events?
If so, can the raid array be re-built without shutting down the OS and 
rebuilding from the SCSI card bios?
If not, is there a Raid 5 controller that has better support with FreeBSD?

Thanks in advance folks.  I'll post a summary of replies.
