I had to get a 2.4.21 kernel to get support for the 20276 chipset.

I suppose you are using the testing distribution?

Actually I installed that on a Woody system.  I just did a wget for
the 2.4.21 kernel-source package and 'dpkg -i' to install.  I used
kernel-package to make the .deb of the kernel.

Do you know that previous kernels such as 2.4.18 didn't support this
specific chip or just that at least 2.4.21 one does?

I just know that 2.4.21 and newer have it.

With the kernel driver mine shows up as /dev/ataraid/d0

Hmmm, I don't even have this directory under my /dev/ (with the stable
distribution).  Does this get added with the testing distribution or
some other way?


It gets added (I believe) when you have configured the kernel for
RAID support.
