There is no magic command to see which one is configured. You have to do some research. If you read my first post
"If it is hardware raid, then I am sure that it will just show up as regular drive to the OS."
After a bit of reading on google about hardware raid, it appears that if hardware raid is set up correctly, then it will just show up as a regular drive would, be it bios "fakeraid", pci hardware raid, or external raid.
You will have to know what hardware you have that is capable of raid. But you can check your bios (dmraid might be of use there). Also can use lspci or lshw for card controllers
lspci | grep -i raid
