Is this normal with linux or is the RAID not working?
Did you check the Hardware compatibilty list to make sure SuSE 10.1 has the drivers for your RAID controller.
I am assuming it is a onboard controller. If so there might not be a driver for Linux so it will not recognize your setup.
Another thing: onboard Raid controllers are not exactly Hardware Raid controllers.
I advise you to buy a real SATAII 3Ware 9550 class RAID controller.
Kernel 2.6.14 and latter already have the driver support. ( SuSE 10.1 is kernel 2.6.16 I installed one with no problem! Works like a charm.)
