FC 5 see 2 HDD even I created RAID1

I got this old Server with Adaptec AIC-7902W chipset embedded onboard the motherboard. Using the Adaptec program (Control+A), I had built 2 HDD with Mirrored (RAID-1). (I want to create RAID-1)

But during Installation of Fedora Core 5, I am still seeing 2 individual HDDs. Please advice me why the FC5 is still seeing 2 HDDs. Do I need to install driver in-order for FC5 to see the "Mirror" HDD as a Single unit?

I google abit still can't find the answer.


I think I found the answer in here:


Another problem appear, if I use Software Raid in FC-5, I got to do some more works, that I had not try before.

If your device needs drivers, its not hardware raid and the OS will be able to see the device. There may be, but I am unsure of any advantages (other than headaches) of a vendors software raid and linux's native software raid.
