SubjectStardom SATA HSM violation

I am installing gentoo 2007.0 (kernel 2.6.19) on a dual AMD Opteron server (total of 4 cores). The hard disk is a Stardom 2611-2S-S1 device: actually two 250GB drives in a RAID0 config managed by the device itself - it should appear to the kernel as one SATA drive. If it matters, the underlying HDs are "Seagate Barracuda 7200 10"s. Here's the device:

During the install and at different points in the process I get an "HSM violation" and the system becomes unresponsive. It looks like a similar situation to:

Will more recent kernels work with this hardware (should I keep it and try the install again) or should I switch hardware to something more compatible (like an Adaptec card)?


console output:

tag 0 cmd 0x39 Emask 0x2 stat 0x58 err 0x0 (HSM violation)
exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x2 frozen
