OK, got the mobo and had a goo at the chips,
its highpoint 370 + 375? [37something anyway] based, IDE-RAID 133MB, and its actually real RAID, not MD. Its configured through the BIOS and has support for hot-plug IDE -> which I sicerely doubt without a SCSI to IDE bridge [but thats what it says so we have to go with that], and more importantly RAID 0, 1, JBODS [naturally] and spare disks. I should have bought more of those IDE drives, just got two 40Gigs to mirror.
The board comes with a linux driver disk, so thats all my worries out the window, and all the accessories I bought had penguins on the box -> the penguin is getting big lads.
Peats, as usual were more than helpfull.
I aquired one of them there Gforce2's 32megs from a friend, got the detonator drivers from the net, installed them but no 3d. Whats up? Never used a g-force before [in linux]
Where do I start? I know there are loads of linux gforce heads on this list and I did battle for a year with the voodoo5 :)
DRI is not something I have played enough with.
This is not an issue though as its nowhere near as good as the voodoo5 but will eventually go into a spare gaming box for when the boyz come over. Only card that has come close, is the mates gforce4. And it is no better [we have the same spec machine]

That sort of stuff is being messed with currently, your best bet would be an
-ac kernel. Don't know about distro support. It's hard to say without knowing
which controller. Is it real raid or the Promise kind that currently works
through md in linux?
