I Am looking to Dump windoze completely the ONLY thing prventing that at present is i do a lot of Gaming (FPS mainly)

So Far i've tried Mandrive 2005LE, 2006(64bit) (as i have had BF2 run on 2005LE under Cedega) Error about RAID.
WARNING: This system has at least one hard disk with a RAID configuration
presented by the BIOS as RAID that is in fact a software RAID. The
following disks were detected as part of such a RAID:
The kernel 2.4 supported some of these systems (like Promise FasstTrack and
HighPoint RocketRaid), but the Linux kernel 2.6does not support them all.
If you install onto these disks, your RAID configuration and any data
on the RAID will be lost. Refer to http://portal.suse.com to learn how to
migrate to a Linux software RAID.
Which distro WILL work? (if any)
If not what do i need? to make one work
Would i be better off Buying a RAID Controller? (which one?)

Any distro will work on that system, provided you set your drives up in a non-RAID configuration. I suggest very highly that you do NOT install a 64-bit version of Linux however. You'll have a lot less trouble getting things to work (particularly WINE) if you install a 32-bit version instead.Registered Linux user #270181
