    When I run CFDisk on the Software installer I see:

    /dev/sda Size: 4496813.98 Serial #: 63D327A7

    So... it would seem to me, thats what would be present when I actually boot the DSS.

    Right?

    Not 100% sure, I know I used to get those before DSS v6 and also with the NetXen 10GB cards.

    The upgrade to v6 and the intel 10gb happened at the same time, so not sure which fixed my problems.
