Sub_title: Install dmraid then mount RAID array

I have an onboard six port SATA RAID controller. It's part of the Intel I/O Controller Hub [ICH10] Southbridge Chipset. Other functions of the chipset are keyboard and mouse controllers, a few USB ports.

People with the following RAID controllers can also mount their RAID arrays using dmraid.
 dmraid -l
[list supported controllers and arrays]

asr : Adaptec HostRAID ASR (0,1,10)
ddf1 : SNIA DDF1 (0,1,4,5,linear)
hpt37x : Highpoint HPT37X (S,0,1,10,01)
hpt45x : Highpoint HPT45X (S,0,1,10)
isw : Intel Software RAID (0,1,5,01)
jmicron : JMicron ATARAID (S,0,1)
lsi : LSI Logic MegaRAID (0,1,10)
nvidia : NVidia RAID (S,0,1,10,5)
pdc : Promise FastTrack (S,0,1,10)
sil : Silicon Image(tm) Medley(tm) (0,1,10)
via : VIA Software RAID (S,0,1,10)
dos : DOS partitions on SW RAIDs

All you need is dmraid and lvm2. I installed them by selecting dmraid from Setup>FD64 Control Panel>System>FD64 Package Manager, which did the job. Handles any needed libraries, etc.

There's a long and complex way to mount your array. But there's an exceedingly easy way too. For me, I just open a command prompt and type
 dmraid -ay
The -ay means 'activate' and 'yes'. Easy as pie. Works.

dmraid will find and activate, then mount and make available any arrays on the controllers listed. I can confirm that it works great with my Intel controller. Also testing JMicron RAID Controller. RAID shows on desktop like other mounts.

Thanks to jamesbond for making this available in Fatdog64 600.

Best Regards,
