Mind browsing your history and letting me know where that script was? I
just got in a trio of 146GB U320 drives to replace the 36GB drives in my
server. Figured I'd Clonezilla the current RAID 5 array, upload it
somewhere, do a clean install of the 146GB drives in RAID 5, then pull
the image down and put it on the new array. I think Clonezilla will let
me resize the filesystem as it's writing it to the new array, but just
in case, I might need to know how to run the resize.
