Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I found the drivers for Silicon Image but is the same for adaptec that I cacth on the site!!!
for red hat 7.3 - 9.0 suse 8.0 - 8.2!!
I need the driver for SATA adaptec 1210SA with the chipset from silicon image for my ""suse 9.0""!!
I try to use the driver for suse 8.2 on my suse 9.0 changing the module "driver.o" when I create the diskette like the manual from suse that I read... but I see the message " This driver is for suse 8.2..." Then I continue to load the module and "kernel panic"!!!!
Yes, the 1210SA is a Software RAID controller. The card itself does not contain any ECCRAM or Hardware RAID LOGIC (XOR).
The card is supported on most new distros, but some IDE-software modules are bugged. ("Lost Interrupt" and or hangs)
The Card seems to work with Fedora Core 3.
The Striped array is detected as 2 HDDs on my system, not as one big good RAID array. (1210SA just a SATA io Card ???)
It looks that i have to set up a software RAID to get my Hardware RAID working. :/
The 2410SA has REAL HARDWARE RAID and 64 MB of fixed ECC SDRAM. Much more hardware, exactly 300$ more.
This is what you need for massive performance servers. (+ 4 HDDs)
But im still happy, in my home-server the processor is not used for many other tasks. (file server only) A MotherBoard with 66Mhz PCI would make me more happy.
Im unhappy about Adaptec's bisness strategy. the 1210SA should be called a Software-RAID card, or a S-ATA IO Card, or maybe a fake-RAID card.
The difference is not really documented.
Same problem, on a HP ML110.
I'm trying to install SLES9, but nothing works: unable to find the discs if the controller is enable, unable to upload the drivers from HP site, because there are only for 32bit systems, and this server is 64bit.
Ok, it is just a sw-RAID card, but I'll be really happier if the supposed support for Linux really works. No good, from HP!
