ive got tahoe, but you can use the tahoe boot blox with reno.
i know, theres something messed up with the boot blocks in the tahoe tape
in the pups archive :(
ive run tahoe with an RQDX3, a CMD CQD220, an emulex UC07, and a CMD
CQD440. works like a champ.

not at all, aside from filesystem size limit. 4.3 only digs 2gb
filesystems, so youll have to split the disks up. for example,
on cmuccvax there is one 2 gig disk and one 3gig, hung from a cqd220.
