Upgrading kernel using HPT370 RAID 0 controller


Hi,

I have installed Redhat 9.0 on an Abit VP6 motherboard using a HPT370 RAID controler with two 40GIG IBM harddrives striped as RAID 0.

To install Redhat 9.0, I used the Redhat 9.0 Highpiont drivers located on the Highpoint web site for the HPT370 chip.

I followed the instructions Highpoint supplied and the installation went perfectly.

The system has great stability and is fast, running two 1GHZ PIII processors! It's a perfect initial system. Hdparm reports RAID 0 harddrive internal transfer rates at about 200MB and overal output at about 47MB/sec.

Since this is an initial Redhat 9.0 installation, I'm running Linux Kernel 2.4.20-8smp.

Kernel 2.4.20-31.9 is available for upgrade via Redhat Network, but will my HPT370 driver still work?

How can I upgrade to Kernel 2.4.20-31.9???
