Hi Carla,

But I'm trying to do native Linux (hardware) RAID - just want to use the 
Linux drivers instead of the Promise ones for my controller. Unless I'm 
getting it all wrong?

The docs I've used are at www.murty.net/ataraid/ (and there was one other 
main ref that I can't re-find now...) if anyone has comments.

Hmmmm, actually - while searching for those links I just found 
https://listman.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/ataraid-list. Just downloading 
the archive now, maybe I'll find my answer(s) there. Other than "don't 
bother!" of course...  ;-)

Thanks to Scott too for your answer - not quite what I needed but I 
appreciate you taking the time.
