I have a MSI KT3 Ultra - ARU with on onboard raid (promise). I have two 40 gig drives raided into 1 80 gig formatted to NTFS, and then partitioned with Part. Maj. into two 40 gigs striped.

XP Pro is on one partition, can I but Linux on the other one ?

It *should* work, but expect a few headaches getting it set up. I would use the Linux RAID driver from the Promise website, along with RedHat 8.0.

NTFS isn't a problem apart from "iffy" read/write support, but for a beginner, setting up a Linux system to handle the Promise hardware might be a challenge. From memory, the docs included with the Promise driver tell you how to do it all.
