DL320 G3 SATA RAID problem with Linux

Hi all,
I have some problem with Linux (redhat ES4). In particular i cannot find a right driver for this distribution.
I have 2 SATA HD and i want to build up a Raid-1 system. As manual says i have put on "Enable" the "Embedded SATA RAID" on "Advanced Options" in the "ROM-Based Setup Utility" interface. Then exit and enter in the "Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility" and create a new Array as Mirror of the 2 SATA HD. Build take about 30mins. Reboot and now i can see:
Adaptec Embedded SATA HostRAID BIOS V3.0-1 1255
Press for Adaptec ....
Controller #00: ICH6R HostRAID at PCI Bus:00, Dev:1F, Func:02
Loading Configuration...Done.
Port#00 Maxtor 6L080M0 BACE1G10 74.53 GB Healtly
Controller #01: ICH6R HostRAID at PCI Bus:00, Dev:1F, Func:02
Loading Configuration...Done.
Port#00 Maxtor 6L080M0 BACE1G10 74.53 GB Healtly
Array #0 - RAID-1 Mirror 74.47 GB Optimal
1 Logical Device(s) Found
Seems to be ok.
After that i have download...

These BIOS RAID are not supported in Linux (yet), this is not a true hardware RAID. You will see both disks even when a RAID is configured. Your best option is to use software RAID. Something more or less related is here:
