Re: [Help] IDE Raid


Promise Technology has a good card, SX6000. It supports up to 6 ide drives in RAID5. I don't remember if it came with a Linux driver but their web site (www.promise.com) has drivers for a couple of flavors of Linux. There is also source code.

Here is the link: http://www.promise.com/support/mix_dwn_eng.asp?product_id=86&family_id=2

My customer used it with 6 - 120G drives on a W2K box.

Good luck.
