Athlon64, Promise TX-4 SATA controller, 6x200GB Seagate SATA drives. 
Two are a mirrored root (and swap) and four are a RAID5 for storage. 
Also using LVM as I have room for four more drives, so when Seagate 
comes out with 400GB SATA drives I can upgrade by 1.2TB.  :-)

Now if the SATA layer would just support hotswap so I can test my 
hotswap enclosures...

Back to the original topic...  I'm trying upgrading the IVTV driver to 
the newest.  I got this message in mythbackend.log after turning on full 
verbose logging:
