some other message)

No one had a definitive answer here.  Scott sent a lengthy message commenting on 
the inadequate state of the Solaris 10 HCL, especially when compared to that for 
Solaris 8.

I also posted this question to comp.unix.solaris, and had a couple of responses 
suggesting that the 'aac' driver might support this controller, but, again, 
nothing definitive.

Dell themselves, however, told me they do not certify this controller with any 
Solaris, only with RedHat.

So, the boss gets his way.
