Do you mean Adaptec ATA RAID?

When you say the rescue cd can't see that directory, do you mean you can't mount /dev/hdc1?

Normally when you use rescue there is an option to mount linux partitions in /mnt, have you tried that then looked in /mnt.

Have you checked at Mandrake to see if the hardware is compatible?

Try rescue mode again. If you can't mount the /dev/hdc1 partition then do this:
fdisk -l /dev/hdc
This will print out the partition table for /dev/hdc. Try to copy that if you can to a msdos diskette or a vfat partition if you have one. Here is how you could copy it.

fdisk -l /dev/hdc >hdc.txt
mkdir /fd
mount /dev/fd0 /fd
cp hdc.txt /fd

or

fdisk -l /dev/hdc >hdc.txt
mkdir /win
mount /dev/hda1 /win #Replace /dev/hda1 with your vfat (windows) partition.
cp hdc.txt /win

If you can get /dev/hdc1 mounted then post a copy of
/etc/fstab
/etc/lilo.conf
Also hdc.txt
