Question Mandrake 8.2 install with hpt370 running raid0 possible?

I want to install Mandrake 8.2 on my system, currently running RAID 0 running WinDoze ME and XP. I've installed mandrake before on other setups pretty successfully, but this is the first time i've tried installing on a RAID. Highpoint has drivers, though none are Mandrake specific, so i'm not sure if i would have to modify an existing driver or if i need to compile a new kernel with the driver or is there a different approach.

System is as follows:

*1.4 Ghz Athlon (266)
*Epox 8k7a+
*256 MB PC 2100 DDR
*(2) Maxtor 7200 RPM 20 GB ATA 100 drives (both as masters on sepperate channels)
*HP 9500i CDRW
*generic DVD
*Matrox G550
*Aureal Vortex
*Blah Blah Blah ....

Left hand column, they have drivers for HPT370, HP370A controlers for the PCI versions.

They dont list a driver for it (for linux) on epox's web page

Unhappy But ...

Yes highpoint has linux drivers listed on thier website, but they apaer to be distro specific, none of which are labled mandrake...
Maybe the redhat one will work, with or without some modification, i don't know
