	Okay, that one. My problems started when I went to multi-user
    mode, and the RAID logical volume was accessed.

	I am running my collection of drives as a RAID 5, but I would
   think your situation should be similiar, given the 3210S is a 
   faster version of the 3200S... Of course, I haven't tried to boot
   my RAID, it only contains user directories.

	When the Adaptec 3210S POST screen comes up, does it should
   one logical disk? I trust you don't have any of the ear-piercing
   alarms going off when the card performs its POST checks.
