I installed a system with a Promise Fasttrack IDE-RAID controller a few
weeks ago and after compiling a fresh 2.4.17 kernel it worked just fine.
Though I wouldn't recommend it for a production system as the RAID has
to be resynced at BIOS-stage as soon as a disk fails. So if you use a
pair of 100GB drives it will take some hours to get the system up
