I guess I will go with FreeBSD then because I have it on my machine at home and it works great! But my boss wanted SuSe so I do ask he said. Yet when I told him this and gave hime the choice between Windows 2000 Server and FreeBSD well I just won't answer that we all should know what he chose .... FreeBSD

Ok Here I go ,
I recently bought 3 Abit KT7A-RAID Mobos from Ebay. I also bought 2
80gig IDE Hard drives for one. I was planning to make a RAID level 0
(striping). I set the hard drives up with the utilitiy that they provided
and set the boot device to the first raid. I then booted into the install
and it saw the two as 2 seperate hds, any ideas? Oh and I can't seem to make
any of the video cards i have to work. one is the geforce 32meg the other is
the geforce 64meg and the other is a ati rage 100?

Does that board have a High Point HPT370 Raid Controller, than the answer
is that there is no support/drivers for this controller at this time.

I have the same problem I got the Epox EP-8K7A+ with the HPT370 Controller
set it up last night with 2 new Maxtor 20GB HDD's. Now I'm just very
disappointed. The High Point Tech web site says on their home page that
the controller is supported under all Linux distro's. However, after some
investigation I found that it only supports it as standard IDE
controller. There is a patch on there web site for it. I also found out
that if you want the Raid 1 0 than your choses are NetBSD, FreeBSD, or the
windows. :-(

Moral: Read the fine print.
