Default Re: Nforce 430 -> RAID5

nv430 chipset is supported in Linux kernels from 2.6.14 up, (maybe 2.6.13) and works more or less. But as far as I know the nv430 raid5 implementation is "software" raid only, please NVIDIA guys correct me if i am wrong , and is not supported by the Linux DeviceMapper tools => short: NVIDIA raid5 NOT supported, raid0,1 supported! But you can use the Linux Software RAID implementation. just google after a tool called mdadm, it is really pretty easy to set up and Linux Software RAID is more often than not faster than other software raid implementations. Linux Software RAID supports modes 1,0,10,5,6
