Help!! Mounting a raid array

I currently have linux (Mandrake 9.1) installed on my primary hard drive. I have a larger raid array already divided into two windows drives, one with xp on it and the other with a lot of files.

I want to be able to access the information on these drives using linux (I was a windows user but I want to switch over to using linux). How do I go about mounting this array. I'm nervous about this because I really don't want to mess up the array.

The controller is a promise mdfasttrak 133, and embedded chip on my asus a7v333 mobo. The two drives are identical 80 gb wd drives.

your situation is very similar to mine, only I'm trying to install mandrake onto the raid. I need to find drivers for the thing, but I'm having mucho trouble. You might want to follow my other thread at

and on another board:

I wouldn't worry too much about damaging the data on your raid. Just installing raid drivers shouldn't do anything.
