SiS 655FX SATA Raid - on Fedora

I want to make 2 SATA disks run as hardware raid. (mirror, level 1).

Fedora Core 2.
Motherboard: Asus P4S800D SiS655FX.
1 ATA-disk (used for OS)
2 SATA-disks (for RAID).

The chipset for the raidcontroller is SiS655FX, but as far as I can see and understand there is not support for Linux (
The bios find the harddrives and also the raid utility makes it possible to make the 2 disks runs as raid. But when Fedora boots up the RAID-drive is not there (I use fdisk -l). I guess that it must be because of lack of driver??

Or is there a thing I have overlooked ?

Hope to get a few comments,

Regards Jan

Well hoped there would be a driver here: ->

but it seems to be some docbook stuff and some code that I cannot use...
