Adaptec Embedded Sata HostRaid 5041 (Marvell chipset MV88SX5041 4-port)


Hi

I have Supermicro based server which has SATA raid. The raid is:

Adaptec Embedded Sata hostRaid 5041 (MV88SX5041 4-port sata pci-x controller)

I have build raid 1 array and it is marked bootable etc. But when trying to install Centos 4.2 it does not found Hard disk(s)
so I googled and founded few pages like:

Linuxmafia.com/faq/Hardware/sata.html

and there is information that says like this:

"For Marvell chipsets 88SX5040, 88SX5041, 88SX5080, and 88SX5081 "Hercules I" (all SATA-I).
Supermicro's ftp site offers proprietary drivers for Marvell 4-port and 8-part SATA chips,
written by Adaptec."

The Supermicros ftp site link is:

ftp.supermicro.com/driver/Diskimag/Adaptec/Marvell/H1

and there is readme like this:

SATARWIN.IMG -- Marvell 4/8Port Hercules 1 SATA Driver by 3rd Party(Adaptec) for Microsoft Windows
SATARH80.IMG -- Marvell 4/8Port Hercules 1 SATA Driver by 3rd Party(Adaptec) for Redhat 8.0
SATAR906.IMG -- Marvell 4/8Port Hercules 1 SATA Driver by 3rd Party(Adaptec) for Redhat 9.0 kernel 2.4.20-6
SATAR908.IMG -- Marvell 4/8Port Hercules 1 SATA Driver by 3rd Party(Adaptec) for Redhat 9.0 kernel 2.4.20-8
SATASL81.IMG -- Marvell 4/8Port Hercules 1 SATA Driver by 3rd Party(Adaptec) for SuSE 8.1
SATASL82.IMG -- Marvell 4/8Port Hercules 1 SATA Driver by 3rd Party(Adaptec) for SuSE 8.2


So the question is, where I can get newer driverdisk and specially for Centos 4.x(2)?
I tried that RedHat 9.0 disk but that does not work..

Best regards,
Pekka
