Are you trying to use ICH5R (raid) with the existing data put on the
disks by the older Promise Raid card you mentioned earlier? Raid vendors
put proprietary *magic* on the disks that prevent moving the disks to a
competitors controller while keeping the data intact, so unless you were
using them as individual disks using software raid, you will probably
need to wipe the disks and use software raid now. Alan would know for
sure, but I don't think the current drivers support the raid functions
of ICH5R.
