Problems adding a RAID card to FC1



I have a machine running FC1 very happily. It serves as a small server running CVS, Samba and a few active web pages with Tomcat as well as some other more customized services. I'd like to add some more storage to the machine to give a little more headroom for the CVS repository & stuff.

So, I scrounged up a pair of old 80G drives and bought a PCI IDE adapter (the only one available in the local store). I did this as all four internal IDE locations are already in use. The adapter installed just fine from the hardware point of view, I even configured a mirrored array with no errors that I could see.

The problem is that this seems to be more or less invisible to FC1. My expectation was that it would just show up as another IDE hard disk. Any thoughts as to how to get FC1 to recognize the hardware? The hardware explorer does not "see" the new adapter or drives either.

lspci does see the adapter as you can see from the output below.

I did Google and found a hit with a link to a Linux driver for the card but the link was bad. Initially I would just like to get it working but in an ideal world I would like to use this as the FC1 drive and free up the existing one for more data storage. If someone has this working with FC1 I'd appreciate any hints.

Thanks

Mike
