Mandrake 9 / Highpoint 372 Raid


Im a total, 100% Linux newbie. After lots of research, I thought i'd give Mandrake a try. So i cleared some space on my HD (which is connected to a HPT372 RAID controller on my Abit m/board). Unforunately Mandrake throws a fit while trying to search for my HD. I then found the following webpage on this forum :

http://www.terra.es/personal2/capullator/

This page gives you a file called "install_mandrake9_hpt372.tgz".

My question is, what the hell am i supposed to do with this file ?

Thanks.

I suppose it's a modified boot disk. I set up RH 7.3 with a HPT 372 RAID controller by booting from a special bootdisk and using a driverdisk and a special kernel to be able to use the RAID system ... you should extract that package using
Code:
tar xvfz install_mandrake9_hpt372.tgz
Probably there will be some kind of readme file in it

Hi! I'm newbie too.... and the past week i've installed RH8 on my abit with HPT370 raid controller.
With no driver/boot disk, after installation all my disk (3 on hpt) are view like hd*... not scsi.
At page http://www.highpoint-tech.com/370drivers_down.htm u may found proper driver or the src (with doc).
To night I try to update the kernel with this recompiled mod.

Question RedHat 8.0 / Highpoint 370 RAID

I've been trying to get my HPT370 RAID working with RedHat 8 but to no avail...

Following the instructions in the Linux Source code distribution of the Highpoint RAID drivers (from the HighPoint website) has left me with a broken lump of source code that won't compile! anyone successfully made this mod to the Kernel and got the RAID working ?

Or should I give up and use a Software Raid instead ?

He dude, I'm in exactly the same situation, but that file is no longer on the site that is referred to. Could you possibly send me that "install_mandrake9_hpt372.tgz"? I'd really appreciate that.
