Look, if something is marketed as "hardware RAID" and it really isn't ... you can't seriously call it standard, can you? What's wrong with happy Windows users if they think they've got an h/w RAID? They just don't know their $25 worth chipset cannot perform as $300 one. Simply in Linux we have to go deeper if we want our systems to function, it still is a hacker's OS (please note! hacker != cracker). Some reading.
I do not know if it is included on the Ubuntu install disk, but I suspect it is. Did you try to boot it up with dodmraid option?
And thats right, it's not about dating, it's a technical forum. Telling the truth should not be taken as insult. If your dentist tells you your good-looking tooth is rotten inside, is he trying to insult you? But hey, if you can't take the truth - go in peace. What do I care, I was trying to help.

So your saying the truth is that Intel platforms are mickey mouse? Sounds like an opinion.

Here is the truth:

Intel is offering a raid solution (even if it is "software") that is inexpensive and offers benefit to the end user. You seem to feel that Intel has deceived people into thinking it is something that it is not. I don't know anything about that, but it is completely another issue and has little bearing on whether Linux should have support for a particular specification. I do know this: Using a pair of Raptors in a Raid0 configuration on my cheap pseudo-raid is faster than not doing it at all. Since my entire motherboard was much less than $300, I am not exactly expecting it to have a workstation grade controller on board. You seem to think that my expectation of Linux to peacefully co-exist with DOS / Windows or whatever else is on my pseudo-raid is unjustified. Since literally millions of IHC7 motherboards are out there, why not support it to the fullest extent possible ( automatically detect it and work with it seamlessly )?

Are all Linux zealots as arrogant as you? What do Raid's, MBR's, and Partition tables have to do with Windows? I posted in the Newbie section because I don't use Linux often. I have developed on AIX, OS/2, VAX/VMS, CP/M, DOS, and Windriver. I was writing code on a VIC-20 the same time as Linus Torvalds. Am I an idiot for not using Linux back then too? To send me some link about how Linux is not Windows just makes you look like an ass. You are clearly someone who despises Windows and is at the very least not happy with Intel. I'll use whatever gets the job done for any particular situation. I am no zealot for Windows or any other O/S. Right now the project I am working on seems well suited to Linux, so I will use it. If you want to be helpful, don't assume you know anything about the people who are asking questions. Being negative to people who are not Linux purists is not going to convert them.

Poor zeppelin1. You have a good day now. BTW, you can't operate Linux on appearences and opinions.
