Mandrake 9.2 and Promise RAID
Ok I have gotten some help and I've decided to go with Mandrake 9.2 if I can. I need a dual boot arrangement with WindowsXP Pro which is already installed.
However I was warned about possible problems with my multiple disk arrangement namely a promise raid with two physical drives attached. Here's the details I think are correct.
Physical Hard Drives:
Maxtor 60GB 7200RPM ATA-133 x 2
Reported in Devices under SCSI and RAID controllers as WinXP Promise Fasttrak100 TX2/TX4(tm) Controller
In Disk Drives it says: Promise 2+0 Stripe/RAID0 SCSI disk device.
Is installing the dual boot Linux going to be difficult with this and more importantly will it stop my ability to boot to WinXP if it has trouble, particularly with the RAID arrangement? Is there any help you can give on what to do in case something weird happens?
