I'm want to install a 64bit linux on my AMD Athlon64 3000+ and Nforce 4 Ultra PC working with SATA Raid 0 disks, but the install program can't find the disk for installl.

Fair warning:
Anyone who uses RAID 0 is saying "I don't care about my data."
It is not a *true* RAID because there is NO redundancy. If you do not run a tape backup every day, be prepared to lose everything forever.


RAID can be setup during the Man* install by specifying which disks have a RAID filesystem the same way one chooses ext2 or ext3(or any other) and then using the "RAID" selection to 'join' the disks together into the type of RAID array you want. IIRC, the install will not proceed to the disk formatting stage if you have selected any RAID FS but did not make a RAID array.

AS a beginner, I strongly suggest you choose RAID 1(disk mirroring - 2 disk minimum) or, at the least, RAID 5(striping with parity - 3 disk minimum). If your time is important to you, it would be wise to setup a RAID 5 with 3 disk array and one spare(4 disk min.).

Of course, mode 0 is available if you choose to ignore the warning and run with it anyway.
