The above Intel serverboards have the LSI SATA controllers with integrated

I turned it on in the BIOS, creates a RAID 1 set and thought - ready to
go !

When I install SLES9 (with SP2) I see the two disks separately though -
and it seems to prefer to use the Intel PIIX driver instead of the LSI

If I go into YAST and change it (it lists both drivers) then I get kernel
panics on reboot - as it can't see the file system.

The system builders (Acer in this case) supply a SUSE 9 driver, so I
created a disk and did an "F6" during the second install.... it sees and
loads the updated driver, but still uses the Intel one for the HDDs - so I
still see two disks.

Ideas ?
