I'm pretty sure that the fastrak is supported in the kernel as of (at least) 2.4.16. Although you should be using at least 2.4.18 due to some IDE I/O probs for various devices (the Ultra/100 bit me in the *ss in 2.4.16)

You might be able to load the module pdcraid (modprobe pdcraid)before your setup attempts to partition your drives. It should load up the ataraid module first (shrug). Don't know much about the defualt RH install procedures...
