You mean the controller I meant at the end (http://content.it4profit.com/itshop/...is-new&LANG=pl). Thanks.
What about integrated fraid on s5000pal ? Any ideas?

You still point out drivers for that external card that we intend to test next week.
I'd need drivers for fake raid on s5000pal please.

I've tried a lot of different drivers for RHEL on CentOS 5.3 which should be compatible with CentOS 5.3 without luck. I've used img images meant for writing on 3,5 " diskettes. None of them worked (dd linux noprobe .... before installation).Finally I've extracted contents of one of the img files inside the file to which You pointed me to in Your last post and found out that none of the pre build modules fit my kernel (2.6.18-128.el5). Every file was meant for older kernels. There was also an rpm file which contained megasr driver.So I've installed dkms as a dependency and then the megasr (megasr-13.04.0120.2009-1.noarch.rpm) which generated megasr module and initrd for my kernel. Everything went fine without any errors. Machine reboots without errors to and there's nothing suspicious in the logs. My question is do I have to do anything more to make it work as it should or maybe that's all ?
I didn't have the time to test it by pulling out an hdd but will do it first thing tommorow morning.

I've shut down the system, pulled disk#2 and ended up with a fresh install. There should be more packages installed but the system behaves like it was booted for the first time. What else could I do to test it ?

I can see in Raid Web Console that something's happening.Drive #1 is being rebuild. Estimated time is:1,5h (quite long).

I cannot help you on the further process. I never used those drivers. And don't think you should
