There is a driver for it alright -
http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/pdcraid/ataraidhowto.html. The only
problem is that you'll have to use redhat to install with it, the problem
being that the drivers might keep linux happy, but the installer still
won't know how to deal with it unless it has been told about ide raid
(which the redhat one has for obvious reasons). I.e. mandrake, debian,
SuSe won't install onto the raid drive. However, you can install onto
another hard drive and copy the installation across when finished - bit of
work involved tho if you're new to this lard.
