I tried to format them to be a RAID 5 array, but Mouthbreathing Operating System folks decided that RAID isn't something they thought was worth supporting on this OS. So, instead, it's just striped - hopefully, that'll be sufficient.

Oooh, in the span of typing this, I'm already at 18% formatted. Once that's done, I can begin installing the serious work software.
