Question RH 7.3 with HPT 370 raid



I need help!!!!
I have RH 7.3 and I am trying to dual boot it with XP on a raid0 with the hpt370 driver. All I need to know is where to get the drivers (highpoint was confusing) and if possible instructions.
Thanks

I had the same desire when I fist looked at installing linux, but in the end I ditched windows and the RAID array.

Unfortunately the HPT370 is not very good. There *are* drivers available for it under linux but these are not stable as yet. (as I last heard anyway).

You should note that your nice new ATA100/133 drives will only run at ATA33 when RAIDed on the HPT370, so ditching the RAID wont be so bad

google groups is a good place to search, this is where I found lots of info on the subject. but when I was looking a few monnths ago, folks were basically saying "dont even bother" Which would have been good advice for me to follow, but I didn't. I wasted a LOT of time and trashed the system a few times in the process

If you _do_ give it a go, post your results back here!

Good Luck!!
