I recently bought a Rosewill RC-212 and configured it in the BIOS for RAID0. Windows 7 recognizes the array without any extra drivers and installed to it without problems.

I installed Fedora 15 on a separate hard drive, however, it does NOT recognize the RAID array and instead shows them as separate hard drives with invalid header information.

Has anyone tried Fedora and the RC-212 or can steer me in the right direction?

This is a fake RAID card.

While there may be drivers out there to make it do the same thing it does under Windows, you'd be better off just using Linux's software RAID. It'll perform at least as well, maybe better due to the tight inteegration between the MD subsystem and the kernel buffer cache.
