You need a boot-disk with hpt370 support to recognize the controller. I
know SuSE 7.1 has it, for older distributions you may have to hunt the
web. Or check dejanews (now google) - there's been tons of posts on
As for the Raid-part: you cannot install Linux on a windows-made raid
partition (since you can't access the windows drivers needed to provide
the raid). You can create raid in linux afterwards. For that, find the
raid-howto that's sure to be somewhere in your package.
