I'm setting up a Fedora Core 6 box on a Areca RAID controller.  Apparently Fedora doesn't have the RAID drivers built in because it doesn't recognize the drive.  How do I go about providing the driver at install time?  I'm installing in text mode.

Actually, I figured it out.. The answer I was looking for was simply the boot option: linux dd

However, Areca hasn't released a driver disk for Fedora Core 6 yet.  So I'm out of luck it looks like.  I think the driver is supposed to be in the 2.6.19 kernel.  I guess I'll have to wait until Core 7 to use this controller.
