You're english is fine :).... better than my Russian.
I'm no expert but I suspect this is one of those quasi RAID cards that
don't work under Debian, they rely on software for some of their
functionality. However, fortunately, software raid in Debian is a much
better solution :)
# Useful references:
mdadm is the tool you need but you may need to disable the RAID
functionality on the card.
You should also check the debian-user mailing list archive; there's been
quite a lot of discussion about these cards.
