Dual Boot SI3112 SATA Raid 0 XP and Linux


Ok, so here's what i want to do, i want to dual boot XP with any linux distro, preferably Fedora, or Ubuntu. My problem is that i have XP setup on an SI3112 using 2 120GB Seagate Barracuda's. I want to install linux on a 40GB IDE Maxtor HDD. Linux doesn't like my SATA Setup, and only recognizes the 40GB HDD, but i'm afraid if i install it on the 40 gb i won't be able to boot windows again. Am i right, or could i use my BIOS as a bootloader and change between which hdd, IDE or SCSI, i want to boot. Will that work?
Thanx

Hi!
Take a look at

May be it will help you to not using BIOS as boot loader.

still no raid

I looked through it, and tried some stuff, but it still doesn't work. My problem is that the sata_sil driver doesn't support Raid 0. Any ideas?
