What a pain in the ass...  here I was hoping I could use these old crappy
drives in a RAID1+0 under NetBSD and move my home directories from my
frankensteinian linux PC to a RealUnixWorkstation(tm).  Grr... There's two
types of hard drives: those that have failed, and those that will.  These
rz23s are close to a decade old, and will probably fail on me within the
next few years.

I guess I could set up two separate ccds and do a nightly level 0 dump
from one to the other.  Of course, there's always that tape drive I have
sitting around.  Hehehe...  :)
