You will need a driver to support hardware RAID.
If the driver is not already available with the Linux distribution, check the Intel site for drivers.
Here is a link that may be helpful

If you need to boot from the RAID controller, you either have to compile the driver into the kernel, or make a special "ram disk" initialization image file with the driver module.

The simplest method is to compile the driver into the Linux kernel.

If the driver can ONLY be loaded as a module, you will have to make a "ram disk" initialization file.
I posted a more detailed description of exactly how I got RAID to work with the Promise FastTrack 374 controller chip on my motherboard here.
