Ya, there're hpt modules in the kernel that will see the drives as IDE
drives. However, I'm using a driver from HighPoint (see
http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA/bios_rr1640.htm#LinuxDrivers) to have
it recognised as a SCSI RAID device. I used the card's BIOS to make a
RAID from the 4 250GB SATA disks, and with the HighPoint driver, it's
picked up as a SCSI device.
Would I possibly be better off to use the IDE drivers in the kernel and
use software RAID on the disks?
