Fedora core 6 Gigabyte mobo Raid problems


Hi there, I am a MCP who has worked with windows for years. I have tought myself over the last 2 and a hlaf weeks how to install Fedora core 6, install nvidia drivers, and alot of other cool stuff (beryl..) I LOVE LINUX. I just cant seem to get it to pick up on my RAID 0 setup. I installed FD6 on a seperate IDE HD. My windows install along with my data partition lie on a RAID -0 set up that is controlled by my mobo (gigabyte p965-s3) When FC boots up it says it cannont read from byte 0-523453 on both my sata HD's (which are in raid-0) I know this is not a real Hardware raid and that i must map the drives or somthing. I just have no idea what i am doing. Like i said i have done rather well for the past 2 weeks considering i have never touched linux. If someone could point me in the right direction or tell me that i am screwed! Thanks

You should be able to access your data if you install a package called "dmraid". After you install it, run "dmraid -tay". If it displays some descriptors that look like it's your array, then run "dmraid -ay" to make the array accessible. Assuming your data is on the second partition in the array, your RAID device that you need to mount would be something like "/dev/mapper/sil_pvnaihyiy2". The current version of dmraid is 1.0.0.rc13.

Sweet! It picked up on the raid set up after running dmraid and i activated it. Now it seems to not stay activated after i shut down, and i still have no idea how to mount it. The directory where i found (or at least what i think) is the raid is dev/mapper/jmicron_GRAID. There are 3 partitions on the drive. What should be the next step i take so i can view that Drive or its individual partitions?
Thanks

Hmm. Normally dmraid will continue to recognize partitions once "dmraid -ay" is run. The "-tay" function is just a test. What distro are you using, and what method did you use to install dmraid?

You are right in that "/dev/mapper/jmicron_GMRAID" is probably your device. You should be able to mount the first partition with
Code:
mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/mapper/jmicron_GMRAID1 /mnt"
Of course, you will probably want to make a mountpoint such as "/win2k" or whatever instead of using "/mnt" all the time.

I typed in the code to mount the raid set up but it said the directory was not found. When i go to the directory /dev/mapper using the explorer it has 4 items in it; A control icon with a screen, volgroup1, volgroup2, and my Jmicron_GRRAID. all of which have a lock icon on them. WHen i am in the terminal i am logging in under root. It tells me its not there when i try to mount in but i know its there!

Thanks
