Server deja vu

Over a year ago, I had a great deal of fun and games when we got some Sun X2100M2 systems:

On to the X2100 M2
Me versus the M2
The M2 comes alive
Server Wars: The M2 strikes back

Well, it looks like I have another battle on my hands. After a stack of flawless installs of X4200 and X4500 boxes, we decided it was worth getting an X4150 to see what the Xeon offered. Our cpu-hungry applications love the idea of quad-core; our data storage likes the idea of 8 disks in a 1U system.

Installing this thing isn't going well. Watch this space...
