That is actually a software raid as well with BIOS support for setup  
and configuration...  But the driver does all the RAID work at  

I have the S2882 and could not get the Sil3114 working even with JBOS  
with 5.3 back when I was installing and going live and so I ended up  
with a RocketRAID 1820a from highpoint (and use it for JBOD only --  
my RAID is SCSI and Adaptec 2200S)
