This is a software raid solution.  It's the BIOS on the card that provides 
RAID features.  Kernel 2.4.18 does not have support for the cmd/sil 680; 
2.4.20 does (it's in the cmd64x driver).  2.5.69 has a separate driver 
(sil680).  I don't know yet whether it's the card or the Linux driver, but 
I get corrupted data in PIO mode and a hang on the first access after 
setting DMA mode when using this card.  I haven't yet tried 2.5.69 with 
this card.
