that's what my memory from way back was - the onboard PC RAID we see really isn't hardware RAID and expects a WIndows OS.
Have you narrowed down the list of possible SATA RAID controllers that might work? Expense is a mixed bag. What is all your important information, documents, photos etc. worth? Suddenly, even several hundred dollars is cheap compared to the loss.
I'm thinking I might go for a shot at the VRAID from hobbes. I did mirror drives many years ago in OS/2, and back of the my mind I feel like I didn't need 3rd party drivers for it, but it was many years ago, and I'm thinking I'm mistaken at this point.
And yes, I know I could load another OS and be on my way, but I've been running OS/2 since the 2.1 days, and really don't want to drink the kool aide after so many years with my favorite OS.
Thanks for the reply.
