The Linux ATA RAID HOWTO explains how to set up RAID 1 (disk mirroring) and then install Red Hat Linux on the mirror device. Promise Technology was one of the first companies to come up with quasi-hardware RAID for inexpensive IDE hard disks. This document covers using the Promise proprietary RAID driver as well as the Linux native ATA RAID.

Release Notes: This release is updated to cover installation of Red Hat 7.3. The kernel configuration section has been updated. An appendix has been added at the end. This explains how to use this HOWTO to install Red Hat 7.3 on computers with HighPoint HPT RAID instead of Promise FastTrak RAID.
Release Notes: The document has had major enhancements made and now includes sections covering kernel upgrades, disabling RAID, and setting up ATA RAID mirrors on an existing Linux machine. The concept of the "append line" has been introduced to help troubleshooting if there were problems recognizing disks at boot time. A link to the French Translation was added.
