Question IDE RAID Controller question(s)


Hello all,

I'm in the process of building a server and need some advice. I'm looking at using the following hardware running SuSE 9.0.

Motherboard - MSI K7D Master-L
Memory - 2 512MB PC2100 REG DIMM
Processor - 2 AMD MP 2200
Drives - 2 80GB Seagate ATA/100 Drives

I'm wanting to run the 2 drives in a RAID 0 configuration. However, the MSI K7D Master L motherboard doesn't have RAID on-board. So, my question is: What inexpensive IDE ATA/100 RAID controller board can I use? I've found some for below $30 but can't find them in the hardware compatibility list for SuSE.

Also, before I came to the MSI K7D Master-L motherboard I was looking at the Gigabyte GA-7DPXDW-P motherboard which does have RAID on-board but can't find much about that motherboard being compatible with SuSE. So, would I be better off going with the Gigabyte?

Thanks in advance,
Keith
