Well then, so much for Adaptec???

Adaptec hw raid stuff is supported (aacraid etc) but to be honest hardware

Oh, I get it now. Adaptec's Hostraid line isn't really hardware raid, it still needs host OS support.

Well, it did look like hardware RAID at first (up until the point when I actually tried to boot Fedora). After enabling RAID, subsequent POST enumerated a single device, on the lowest SCSI ID of the two drives.

That still leaves the question of a working SCSI hardware raid card.  I'm
open to suggestions.  Some Googling brings up occasional reports of random
glitches with software raid; so I'd still prefer a hardware raid solution.

I've got 3ware bits - which work nicely, and aacraid - which works pretty well although it doesnt like some of the RH kernels. You can pick up decent aacraid cards (quad channel perc2/qc aka "Obsidian") on ebay.

I can't find SCSI stuff on 3ware.com. They look to be in the business of ATA RAID only.

Looks like my only option appears to be LSI Megaraid 320-1.


That should work..
