OK, will take a look at this tomorrow. BTW, what machine is this?

     The dmidecode output is at:


Here's a description of the components in it and how they're installed:

Tyan Thunder K8S Pro S2882 motherboard (purchased sometime around
April, 2004) BIOS version 3.09

2 AMD Opteron 240 1.4GHz (CPUs - purchased sometime around April, 2004)

4 Mushkin 991143 1GB Memory Modules PPRO3200 ECC REG (4GB RAM -
purchased sometime in 2004 or 2005)

Emphase FDM80SQI2G 2GB IDE Flash drive - serial: 20110112AA5B00000041
(boot device - purchased 2011-04-05, installed 2011-05-02)

     Neither the motherboard, nor the CPUs are "new" enough to have
hardware virtual machine support.

     Two of the memory modules are plugged into the slots for CPU0 and
two are plugged into the slots for CPU1.

     The Emphase flash drive is plugged directly into the Primary
IDE/PATA connector on the motherboard and set as Master.  It contains
GRUB in the MBR, a partition with an ext4 Debian Linux root filesystem,
and a small, bootable FAT32 MS-DOS partition for the motherboard BIOS
flash utility.

     The WD Caviar drives are plugged directly into the SATA ports on
the motherboard and are mirrored by the kernel as /dev/md0.  That mirror
has a partition set as a physical volume for LVM.  LVM allocates logical
volumes from that space for:
