Is NVidia planing to develop a RAID driver for linux ?
 
Since there seems to be noway of using NVidia raid on both linux and windows for my fat32 partition I'm seriously thinking of changing my hardware. Either bought a real SATA RAID card or new Hard drive.

But if development is plan or runing I'd reconsider this option.

Thanks to let us know about this; I bet I'm not the only one interested.

yes there is. Google "dmraid" (not mdraid) and "fakeraid".
The Linus dmraid driver supports nVidia "RAID".

Unless you really need to use RAID for Windows, I'd just use mdraid (native Linux software RAID) and LVM. That's what I'm doing...

If you don't mind spending the cash, a real hardware RAID card (no drivers to install at all, unlike nVidia RAID), that's the way to go. Get an Areca card...

Thanks for your answer, but as I said, I need raid compatibility on linux and windows.

if you had googled dmraid as suggested, you would have found out that there is no need for nvidia to developer a linux "nvidia raid" driver...
