Fedora 9 and raid 5/dmraid?


Well long story short I cannot log into windows. Broken profile or soemthing of that nature. I have a fix on a flash drive for it. Just soemthing I drag and drop into the system 32 folder. But I can't do that. When I type in my password for pirate xp pro it starts to log me in then logs me out not 2 seconds later. In regular mode and safe mode. Someone suggested putting knoppix (5.1.1) on a flash drive and boot from it to get my data off. I tried that, only to learn that knop[ix doesn't work with my raid controller.

System
LP UT NF3 ULTRA-D
AMD 64 X2 4200+
3GB RAM
3 SATA 120GB Seagate Barracuda drives in RAID 5
FastTrak S150 SX4-M
Apogee 6800 GT

All I have done so far is this.

I thought I read somewhere that fedora or suse may work with my raid 5 controller but I can't find where I read that now... Someone else said I'd have to use dmraid.

Isn't knoppix 6 out? Maybe that would work. Also post your lsmod output. Sometimes knoppix doesn't load all the correct modules. With a quick google search I could not figure out if there are any drivers in the kernel that would work with this card though. You could trying installing the evil proprietary promise linux driver.

1. Why did you start another thread -- this is essentially the same as:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...51#post3531351

2. Why are you asking for help w/ apparently stolen ("pirate xp pro") s/w?


Reported.

Given the subject matter of warez I've reported the other post
