The way to check is to:
1) Read the documentation and HOWTOs in the kernel source.
2) Reference your hardware (drive and chipset) in your questions,
and see if someone has had experience with them (likely).
Personally, I find it difficult to troubleshoot problems when the only
data I'm given is "These things cost money". Give us something to work
Debian GNU/Linux Because software support is free, timely,
useful, technically accurate, and friendly.
Reboots are for kernel and hardware upgrades.
