Sean, have you played with the iSCSI stuff at all?

I keep seeing the startup messages for it when I load machines, and then go
disable it along with everything else I'm not using, but it looks rather
interesting to try.  (One of those, "I'm tempted but I don't have time"
things - ya know?)

This sounds like you might be talking about that...
