Default SATA-Raid linux install

He folks, in a few day I saw a friend asking for some support about sata-raid and I wanted to tryed my self.

I got an AsRock AsRock P4VM800 and 1 Sata hard drive of 80Gb Raid utility is not configure yet, (I need minimun 2hdd's) but I got the windows driver and from there being able to load os, I got a 60Gb windows partition and 20 Gb partition for linux.

What's the deal?? am unable to tell linux to where to find or at least try to find driver that is on a floppy (for windows) I have send communication to vendor www.asrock.com to see if they have the driver or just si windows supported. I got error loading fedora's setup:

kernel panic "unable to mount VS" mount root fs on unknown-block (8,3)

And there sits there and do nothing, just have to reboot machine.

Any ideas??

Most onboard sata controllers are not supported by the linux kernel yet. As far as i know only some pci sata controller cards from 3com and adaptec have linux drivers.

The kernel panic you have is from using kernel 2.6 if you want to start to use raid of any kind you must first use kernel 2.4.

Try
Code:
yum search kernel
and check if a 2.4. kernel exists for Fedora Core 4.

It's a 2.6 kernel, you can check with
Code:
uname -a
