Intel Matrix Storage Manager

Has anyone suceeded installing Linux on an Intel platform with the Intel Matrix Storage Manager? When I tried the installation with both CentOS (RHEL AES) Version 4 (kernel 2.6) the installation goes fine until it is time to write to the hard drives. AT that point, it tells you that it doesn't recognize any hard drives and needs a driver. I examined all of the Intel supplied drives from Red Hat and none seem to match the 82801 GR/GH SATA RAID. I also checked the Intel site and it doesn't look like there is a compatible Linux driver for kernel 2.6.

Any advice?

My PC got the "Intel® Matrix Storage Technology", too.
(Intel 945G Express chipset)
I was thinking of getting a second HDD and setting up a RAID, but... would it work in Linux (Debian)?

Intel's driver page for the device only got Windows downloads.
