Re: 3ware Escalade 6410 == 6x00 series?
For what it's worth, I've been using an Escalade 6800 on OpenBSD 3.0 just fine for months.
It's an 8-port IDE RAID. (Yes actually 8 IDE cables to 8 IDE drives.) Does RAID 5.
It's hard to find now, I think they discontinued it. But if you find one, it does work just fine in OpenBSD 3.0 and up.
