gigaraid with slackware 9.1
hello i want to get my gigaraid working with 0. stripping i think? the 2 hard drives show up in the displays when i boot up. iam at the stage where i am booking from cd. so i think my question is what kernal do i use. i found a thread that said to use ataraid.i but i couldnt find it. in my motherboard manual it says that linux is supported. thank you for your help.

i have found in a previous thread to use a ataraid.i kernal. i couldnt find it but it did boot the kernal. when i come to the part where i use cfdisk. i get
FATAL ERROR: cannot open disk drive press any key to exit cfdisk
i used the command dmesg | more and got
Promise Fasttrack (tm) software raid driver 0.03 beta: No raid array found
HighPoint HPT370 software raid driver for linux version 0.02
driver for silicon image (tm) medley (tm) hardware version 0.0.1 : No raid array found

kmod : failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, erno = 2
kmod : failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, erno = 2

what i get from this is that i dont have the right drivers for giga raid. the bios recognises the raid array. does any one know which kernal i should use for gigaraid. thanks for the reply

i have found the drivers for the raid at the ITE website. they have support for debian, redhat, mandrake, suse and turbo. there is also source and make files for the 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernals. so my question is how can i make a kernal so that i can use it to install a kernal on my raid array. my thinking is that i have to have another single harddrive to install linux on then complie the kernal with the raid drivers. Then plug the array harddrives in, then they are useable i.e. i can mount them. what i want to do is install from the cds or floppy with a kernal that can recognise the raid array. please help me im getting closer and more over my head. thanks
