Syba IDE controller RAID 0 Ubuntu install problem

I just purchased a Syba IDE PCI controller card and was hoping to set up RAID 0 with my two 500GB drives and install Ubuntu to it.

Once I get to the disk partitioner, Ubuntu install only sees two 500GB despite the controller card striping them into RAID 0. Shouldn't the controller card simply present the drives as a single 1TB drive to Ubuntu? Everything is set up correctly on the controller card, each drive is on its own channel. Anyone have any experience with this?

Syba controller card info page is here:
Model is SD-ATA133R.

Hey I have the same issue, I think however you need to install a SATARAID0 Driver before it will see the 1 TB RAID drive.
