> 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.
Anyway ,depending on the mobo, you can use the first 2 IDE controllers
at the same speed (133) and add an extra -X70 in your rc.local

Mandrake 8.2 supports it straight on startup.

You need to install the closed source drivers and then modify your
XF86Config to change nv to nvidia and add Load "glx" in the modules
section. Start X and do : xdpyinfo |grep -i gl (it should return : gl,
glx and nvidia-glx). DRI is not supported by nvidia closed source
drivers but performances are here.
