Chipset Specific SATA and RAID Links



Linux RAID Howto:
Linux RAID HOWTO - for 'MD' Software Driver or this: Same but (1) SINGLE page HTML HOWTO (Good for Printing.)

SLACKWARE/Linux RAID Howto(s):
Slackware RAID HOWTO - for 'MD' Software Driver
Another good Slack setup.
And another.
And this - all for Slackware Software (MD) RAID.

Included this because of so many questions about Silicon Image and RAID - (***Includes good SATA-RAID-0 Setup for all):
Enabling SilImage 3114 SATA Chipset Support on Linux

SATA/RAID for TYAN Motherboards - ICH5r, Silicon Image, and RAID Drivers (For RedHat, but works for others...):
(SATA)Drivers for Tyan Motherboards

Promise 20376 SATA RAID controller in Linux (Follow links for help on setting up RAID, too!):
Promise 20376 SATA and RAID Info

Good newbie explanation of how SATA works with links to other sources:
Silicon Image 3112 Serial ATA Controller

If you have a VT6410, VT6420, VT6421, or VT8237 RAID controller then try this link - (Mostly READMEs for RedHat users):
Via Raid (SATA and IDE) Proprietary Drivers and PDFs

If you run a 2.6.X kernel and want Raid, go here for summaries or source. (Part of 2.6 kernel):
DMRaid (v. 1.0.0-rc2) Announcement, and  SOURCE and/or RPM

If you run a version 2.4 kernel and want Raid AND have an Intel Chipset (ie "Asus P4P800 Deluxe"00 - my motherboard ;), go here:
ISWRaid (Intel Software Raid) Announcement and Intel (ICH5, ICH5r, ICH6) Raid Driver for 2.4 Kernels

INTEL Web Site for info on ICHx Chipset:
ICH5 and ICH5R SATA support in Linux

Here is an excellent source for setting up RAID but it is generic as far as chipsets:
The Linux Documentation Project - RAID 0,1,4,5 Setups

Mostly info on Enterprise RAID solutions:
"Linux and HW raid - An Administrators Summary"

Mega Raid Announcement and FTP Site.

Main Serial ATA Site: SerialATA.ORG

Link I found on LinuxMafia .. Includes ISO with RAID support:
Bios raid support on Linux 2.6.x

->  Remember to always check LinuxMafias site for specific chipset/controller info!

-> Always looking to add more...Keep WATCHING.
-> (Email me if you have a good addition in mind.)
