RE: BladeCenter Software RAID install?

You should be able to.  

Have you discussed this problem with IBM's Blade support engineers?

I'm using the kernel on the BladeCenter boot disk from Red Hat's 
vendor-specific errata section.  I'll check the firmware, thanks for the 
tip.  I think fdisk defaults to the same geometry as Disk Druid, but I 
know how to override that.  If I create the partitions with fdisk, can I 
then use Disk Druid to create the RAID pairs?
