A9890A Smart Array question

Hi all,
I would like to add a A9890A Smart Array 6402 on HP RX4640 in order to have redundant root disk since this system is running Linux SLES9 and mirroring is not available.
My question is do I need to install the card before I installed the OS or after or it does not matter.
thanks,
A.K.

Shalom,

Install the card, boot the machine, look for it on ioscan

If the card shows up as claimed, you are ready to boot again and set up hardware raid.

If not, you will need to pull drivers from it off a recent Core OS CD/DVD
