[Techtalk] Hello - intro

I've just joined up to techtalk. I've been subscribed to the Melbourne list
for a little while and went along to a meeting today. Someone there
suggested that techtalk would be a good list to be on to pick people's
brains about some "stuff". :-)
I'm running a RH 7.2 system on a Tyan Thunder LE-T (S2518GNR) mainboard
with on-board IDE RAID (Promise FastTrack). Spec overview is at
http://www.tyan.com/products/html/thunderlet.html. My system has 2 x 40GB
Quantum Fireball 7200RPM drives in it (currently on separate IDE channels).
When I did the initial RH install I played around with trying to get the
RAID support working, but with no luck. I used the ATA-RAID HOWTO and a
couple of other installation "guides" that I found on the net as references.
If anyone has experience with getting IDE RAID working on this mainboard in
particular, or a similar system, or is just an IDE RAID guru, I'd love to
hear about it. :-) I'd still like to get RAID going instead of just doing
the scripted backup to 2nd disk that I'm using at the moment. The system is
already in production as a web hosting server, which makes migration a
little trickier too.
