	thanks for Your email. Linux sees the hpt370 onboard ide raid
controller as a normal ide controller (no hw raid). My board has a primary
ide controller + hpt370. So I can use 8 ide devices parallel. I wanted to
install linux and sw raid on the 4 disks (hanging on hpt370) but I decided
to put a 5th ide hdd on the primary ide controller for root.
Thank You again, best regards,
