I understand that, with i5/OS, I can keep a 4-disk RAID-5 array, AND a
2-disk mirror in the same ASP? Nice!

Your disks are identical, they are all 6718's. With SCSI disks, the model#
changes depending on how the disk is configured.
70 - part of a RAID 5 set, contains partity

Somewhere I've got details on the other values :) or maybe somebody will
jump in with it..
