I have a pc clone with an lfs version6.3 os that was builded from a live CD. It got on the internet

Dell has historically had a pretty low-end line of RAID cards (the PowerEdge Expandable RAID Controller, or PERC for short) that have required tons of time and care to get them operating at a reasonable level. This blog post will cover my experiences with the PERC6/E line of cards (which aren't that bad, especially compared to previous versions) and how to get optimal performance out of them on Dell 1950/2950 machines, as well as PostgreSQL general configuration.
