What kernel module gets loaded, then?

I was going to use the card with three SATA II drives to create a 1 TB
RAID 5 array, and install Fedora 7 on it.  But, then I thought that if
the card driver wasn't in the kernel, I would have to rebuild it with
each kernel upgrade, including inserting it into the initrd - big pain
in the ass.

Soooo, I've been considering using an IDE drive as the boot/OS drive,
and the RAID array for data to make everything simpler (no need to put
the module into the initrd with each new kernel upgrade).

Regards,

Ranbir
