Been working all day on something I wanted to do for a long time. . . . installing linux in raid with the the embedded Highpoint controller on my Abit motherboard. Of course, throught the years it was something that never worked. Linux couldn't read the partition tables, no matter what distributions or revision.
Times have changed! With the latest Abit bios and 3.01 Highpoint bios, from Sudhian Media, on my Abit AT7 Max, and the latest drivers for the 374 chipset for Red Hat 8, it worked! Finally! The only problem I have is Red Hat doesn't see the harddrives as mounted, yet obviously its in there. The install saw it all, but did I lose it in the reboot? Maybe i need the 3.02 highpoint bios.
So, I have a dual windows XP and Red Hat 8 boot in hardware! Maybe Red Hat 9 will be even better.
Partition Magic 8 in windows is confused by it all after the install too.
