Wrong, ataraid works fine on 5.x.
However there are some ATA software RAID setups that I havn't done the
metadata code for yet, but they'll get there eventually time permitting.
You can always use atacontrol to setup a RAID on *any* ATA
disk/controller setup, however you will need a BIOS with a known
metadata layout (Promise/Highpoint) to be able to boot from it (se man
atacontrol(1) for details)..
