Hello everybody!

I'm waiting for a Fedora Release which supports my SATA RAID set. I'm
wondering if FC3 is what i'm waiting for...

I have the ASUS A7N8Deluxe with the Silicon Image Sil 3112A-Controller with
and RAID 0/1-support in the _BIOS_. That means: I have a config tool in the
BIOS and there i can merge my 2 SATA Disks to one big (striped RAID 0).



yep you can create the software raid layout in the bios




After doing this, for the OS it looks as if i have one big, fast disk. With
the drivers SiI supports for WinXP and RH9 (



actually to the OS it looks like 2 individual disks which have a software raid layout on it.

dmraid will be the linux side to drive these software raid devices.



FC2 has had support in it for the Sil3112 under software raid or just normal.

As far as i remember the Sil3112 is not hardware raid so to the driver even with the bios layed out as raid it will not see a raid set...
