I bought a tyan thunder k8sd pro s2882-d\nThe sata raid does not work with Fedora Core 3 and 4 despite the fact\nthat Tyan writes on mobo box that it supports Linux and the rest of the\ncrap.\n\n1. The floppy disk connector cable is too short thus the floppy drive\ncannot be used even on pc cases (I have tried on one just for the hell\nof it)\napparently the idiots at Tyan place the connector where was convenient\nfor them\nnot to be used.\n\n2. After using the bios utility to configure a 4 disk sata raid FC4\ninstalls ok, however it\ndoes not reboot.\n\n3. Contacted Tyan a while ago, never heard from them, thus it can be\nconcluded that Tyan\ndoes not have technical support.\n\nHere is some advice, stay away from Tyan. I will try ASUS and MSI, mind you\nI will stay away\nfrom their SATA RAID bullshit and used a proper raid controller, because the\nonboard raid is\njust marketing bullshit..
