RH9.0 can't detect RAID controller

Hi all folks,

How to make RH9.0 recognize RAID Controller

New installation RH9.0 on a RAID-0 box
Partition-1 (Drive-C in Windows) running Win2K
Partition-2 (Drive-D in Windows) empty without formatting

Test as follows;
After booting up with RH9.0 CD#1
Seleting "Manual partition"
Showing up only 2 drives, hda and hdc not as an entire drive of total capacity 80G (each HD has 40G capacity) as in Win environment. I can only choose either hda or hdc to proceed

This is an old RAID-0 box for test purpose
RAID controller
Z-Cyber Speedway 133 + RAID

During booting the motherboard detects the RAID controller

Win98 and Win2K have been running on this box without problem. Before I also have installed only RH9.0 on it. It ran without problem but I did not recognize whether the RAID controller has been detected. I chose "Automatically partition" Sorry I could not recall exactly.

Kindly advise how to make the RAID controller detected by RH9.0. I have its floppy for installing Win driver but not Linux

Any suggestion? Thanks in advance.
