Re: K8S Pro (S2882UG3NR) + Sil 3114 (Raid 1) + Sarge

Hi Lennart,

just read your reply once more. Just for the records: Iam looking for hardware 
raid. I already ahev Suse Linux up and running and actually just want debian 
to be able to access the drives the same way (after the reboot). That is 
(without the hardware raid) basically a typical dual boot setup.

Shouldnt there be a Driver for the Sil3114 Controller ? I know that Tyan makes 
the drivers for Suse and Redhat. I was hoping that perhaps a nice driver 
developer is reading this and spend a few hours of devoted motivation to get 
this done ;-)

Best regards

Nils Valentin
