Slackware 10.1 lilo and raid


OK I'v got about 2 hours of sleep but Ill try to make this readable

I'm trying to get lilo to install, but it has problems it says something about
"ataraid driver ...kernel does not support underlying"
thats after I try to install lilo with liloconfig I'm using a highpoint 372n raid 0 stripped I think ?
had problems trying to install grub as alternative uninstalled grub.
heres my lilo.config


# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
lba32 # Allow booting past 1024th cylinder with a recent BIOS
boot = /dev/ataraid/d0p3
#compact # faster, but won't work on all systems.
prompt
timeout = 50
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
vga = 773
# Normal VGA console
# vga = normal
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
# vga=791
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k

# ramdisk = 0 # paranoia setting
# End LILO global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hde3
label = salckware
read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hde1
label = Winxp
# map-drive = 0x80

# to = 0x80
table = /dev/hde
# Windows bootable partition config ends
# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hde2

# map-drive = 0x80
# to = 0x81
# map-drive = 0x81
# to = 0x80
table = /dev/hde
# Windows bootable partition config ends


I would like to install lilo to superblock of /dev/ataraid/d0p3
