I'm a total noob to linux but in the last few days I've managed to familiarize myself somewhat with how the system works, and I'm not completeley windows dependent because I've been using dos for years. But windows sucks and thats why I'm here. It managed to screw my RAID 0 stripped and I'm counting on Linux to save me. Please don't let me be wrong.

So I need some help getting linux to recognize the raid. Right now it sees it as 2 scsi devices 250GB instead of one 500GB. sda and sdb I believe. Do I need special drivers for this controller? ALi 5289. Or is there some command I don't know about to activate the raid? When I boot the raid bios seems recognize fine as a 500gb so I don't believe this is hardware related.
