I have just pulled a new one out of a the box and done a boot and 
partition test on it using 6.3-RC2 boot only CD.  Seemed to work just 
fine.  I haven't got any PERC6/i's in production at this stage so can 
really say about their stability/performance just that they appear to 
work just fine with the 10 minute test I just did.
