Unhappy Mandrake and Riad

Hi I have an abit kr7a with the intigrated highpoint 372 raid controller I have two hard drives running through the raid but the raid is only acting as a normal ide controller (as specified in the bios)

When I go to install linux on my primary master not throught the raid but with it enabled

While its loading from the cd it tells me that the kernal has panicked ?

And the install stops

I fI disable the raid in the bios then It all installs ok But there is a lot of data on the other two drives I want to be able to acess through linux

Oh I am running mandrake 8.2

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers Judas

First update your BIOS, I got the manufacturer's link but it seems to be down, but there are hits on google
And then you can recompile your kernel to include RAID support, or you can re-install OS (upgrade).
