You do get apt-get for RH, though (http://apt.freshrpms.net).  Works
quite well too.  I use it on one of my home boxes (the other runs Woody)
and manage to keep my distro updated reasonably well.

Which kind of RAID? Using a regular RAID controller with SCSI, or IDE
hardware RAID (Promise/ Highpoint) or software RAID?  I'm guessing that
this might be the IDE RAID thing, for which the RH default kernels
provide compiled in support. Don't know about Debian, but maybe they
don't have it.
