rhel 3.0 setup on intel mobo se7525gp2

Config: (2) 80G SATA drives on the embedded RAID controller, setup as RAID 1
(5) 250G PATA drives attached to a 3ware 7506 card as RAID 5
Linux disk partitioning sees the RAID 1 setup as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb (rather than just a single disk)
the 3ware RAID 5 config is shown as /dev/hdc (which it should be)
How do I get RHEL to use the hardware RAID 1 and see it as a single disk?
I've checked the Intel site for embedded RAID drivers and don't see any listed for Linux.

The fist SATA raid isn't a hardware RAID, but instead is a winraid that requires special drivers. Those aren't included in RHEL 3.0 thus it sees the individual drives. You can, with essentially no decrease in performance, configure software RAID 1 on the two drives.
