[PlanetCCRMA] RAID questions...kernel patch?

Hey there - have a question...

With the current planet kernel/FC3, is SATA hardware raid supported?

my task is to rebuild a media server to make it perform better and be solid,
and I'm thinking of trying an FC3/planet kernel setup.  But the key part i'm
struggling with understanding is whether I can set up the RAID mirror

The mobo is an ASUS p4p800se and it has two drives, which of course, we want
to act like one, be mirrored, for safety, all that good stuff...  our
current version of the server uses gentoo and can't take advantage of the
ASUS hardware raid, but we're thinking we might be better off using the
hardware raid than a software raid...

I've read a couple places that I may need to patch the kernel - which is why
I ask here, because the other goal is to improve its performance, and I
don't think the current server even has any realtime patches, it's just a
straight 2.4 kernel.  so I was thinking about just doing a mostly planet
style install...

anybody have any clues?  *turns eyes at fernando...*  *grin*
