I don't know.. Termination seems to be "odd" in this case since it's an old
Compaq Proliant rack case with original hard disks in it. They're not known
to be problematic. Even if they're old and slow.. :)

Also, when I go to the controller's disk utility to verify media and
low-level format the drives they're reported as 8.4GB, which is correct.
But when I go to "Create Array", they're shown as 4GB disks. I'm really
confused. The other drives in the rack are 18.2GB drives and they're
reported correctly all the way.
