Default Re: Dual Booting With Linux in Raid

I said that I had a motherboard on order, but I found out this morning that my supplier could not find his supplier, so I'm still looking. I sent an email to Gigabyte to find out if that motherboard is in production, because after spending most of the day, everybody said that the board was either not in production yet, or had been dropped. I'm still persisting, because it is the only motherboard that I have been able to find that has the features that I want. Apparently, the manufacturers have been dropping their AGP boards, forcing everyone to go PCIe, but that is something that I shall not do.

Even if the Silicon Image Raid controller is run by software, maybe it can work okay...I will just have to find out for myself. I'm more than willing to accept that Areca and the other recommendations, as far as I'm concerned, are superior raid controllers, I can't spend $400 for one. Surely, there is a more affordable option that will work.
