When I checked a few months ago I only found a binary driver for redhat
for that promise 20378. May have changed since, but I too run just two
drives in raid1 using md software raid. I want nothing to do with the
software raid crap provided by the BIOS. md raid I can fix manually if
In my experience Sil3112A chips work fine, the 3114 didn't work very
well last I looked into it, but that was a while ago and it has
hopefully changed since.
ICH5+, VIA, nvidia all seem to have working SATA support in linux too,
and some boards have 4 or more ports provided by the chipset already
without the use of add on chips.
