Done, see below discourse.

Not sure if I am going to get an answer as to which chip-set actually are
supported, meaning 'actually work'. Surly some-one is using chip-set RAID
and can tell which ones currently work?

"The chipset is *actually* supported.  If you have a problem then you
should go through the usual support methods when you find a bug: report it
with some details either in your distribution's bug tracker, or on the
ataraid mailing list."

 I don't know if this is the correct place to send this, please send me
information on where I should post of this is not the right place.

dmraid version
1.0.0.rc16 (2009.09.16) shared

RAID 0, Asus M2V motherboard, via 8237, 2 * hitachi 250Gb HD

ubuntu 11.04 and fedora 15

running 'dmraid - ay' gives the following output.

ERROR: via: invalid checksum on /dev/sdb
ERROR: via: invalid checksum on /dev/sda
no raid disks

windows via v-raid tool shows no errors, array boots works fine in windows
7. Have rebuilt array several times to ensure metadata should not be

attached is dd of /dev/sda with metadata. Sorry, dumped 3000 sectors so a
bit more than you need ;)

Any assistance greatly appreciated, even if this is just my setup that
is weird, I am happy to patch around it to get it working. I looked at the
via.h and could not work out where to start :(

As I said at start, if this is not the correct place then please inform me
where is, and please accept my apologies.
