Oh, yeah. I haven't touched the bios raid. I use the linux md raid instead. There isn't a single (consumer-level) motherboard that actually has hardware raid on it, no matter what the advertisements might say, so don't worry about choosing a motherboard based on that. Just use linux's raid and you'l...
