Contrary to popular belief the Highpoint chipsets are only software RAID.
The driver uses processor time to actually do the RAID work. The chip is
just an IDE controller. Based on that even if it isn't supported at a RAID
level you can still use the software RAID avaliable in linux as the kernel
has had standard IDE drivers for the highpoint for a while now
Hope this helps

On the topic of RAID...
does anyone know if the HighPoint RAID chipsets are supported YET?
BSD has had support for this for ages... linux in the game yet?
