comment How do I correlate /dev/sd devices to the hardware they represent?
Yes, it's Linux. Specifically Debian 4. I checked dmesg, but didn't see any mention of a drive model, oddly. Perhaps I'm misreading it.

Awesome, I have /sys/ (as well as /proc/) Lots of great info there. Still consuming it.

I had considered how to get the lights to go blinky-blinky, so this is an answer to that curiosity of mine. =)

This would work for most situations, I believe. However, for some reason the controller in this server is sketchy. Performing that command earns me this: HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed: Invalid argument

Okay, it appears that I shamefully left out some information that is pertinent. The keyboard I'm using is an external keyboard. When using the built-in keyboard, alt-sysrq-b works perfectly. I'll add this to the post shortly...

@Gilles Laptop - but interesting that there could be a difference. I'd be fascinated to know what the distinction would imply in the scenario!
