I am attempting to install 6.0 Stable on an Asus P5MT-M motherboard (Intel
ICH7R), which contains onboard SATA RAID bios (LSI MegaRAID).  Standard
sysinstall in call cases.  I am noticing several inconsistencies:

1) When SATA is in Enhanced mode, no drives are detected.  5.4 detects both
drives just fine

2) When SATA is in RAID mode, no drives are detected, 5.4 yields the same

3) When SATA is in Compatible mode, *one* drive is detected, AND a raid
volume is also detected (but in degraded status).  5.4 detects these just

Ideally, installing 6.0 (or even 5.4) using the RAID function would be

Any suggestions?
