  Hi Heinz,
I created a 3 drive stripe on a promise fasttrak pdc20262 controller (they worked on sil 680 before with dmraid) but it isn't finding the metadata on my fujitsu drive.  Can you post the command for me to send you the pdc metadata on it?
dmraid -r
/dev/hde: pdc, "pdc_cgcbfeei", stripe, ok, 6346305 sectors, data@ 0
/dev/hdg: pdc, "pdc_cgcbfeei", stripe, ok, 6346305 sectors, data@ 0

Here are the drive's information from the kernel log:
