Damien (and Mark),

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

This is exactly the kind of clear step by step I needed. The 
HighPoint card is up and running and the machine is, as I type 
this, formatting the RAID6.

Man, I have wasted untold hours trying to get this to work. 
HighPoint should hire you as their documentation writer!!!

Extremely grateful in Tokyo,

Tim Selander
