    More to the point, why didn't you just install a 2.4.18 kernel
    and use the Adaptec-supplied driver and the RAID-1 capabilities
    built into the card's firmware? (Note, I'm not trying to disparage
    Jeff's work on libata here.)

    I have this setup and it works flawlessly with a pair of 160GB
    SATA drives.
