Does anyone know where I can find the RAID management software for nVidia nForce4 SATA RAID?

Does anyone know where I can find the RAID management software for nVidia nForce4 SATA RAID?
nVidia's site does not have the management software that normally comes with motherboards with their nForce4 RAID SATA controllers (I've searched for at least an hour, but the site is user-"mean")

Help!

Motherboard manufacturer web site would be simpler. But here's how from nVidia site.

Download appropriate nForce driver package. Instructions for extracting F6 RAID drivers are in a PDF file available on down load page. Look under Additional Info on left side of web page for RAID Floppy Disk Install. Here's a representative web page for an nForce 4-500:

That's only the drivers.
I am looking for the MediaShield software.
Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

That's even easier --> it's included in the nForce driver package.

The motherboard is a GigaByte GA-2CEWH using the nForce4 Professional 2200 Series IDE/SCSI chipset (sometimes referred as the nForce 2200 Pro).  I've downloaded MediaShield from that site about 1.5 years ago from Gigabyte's site, but that board is no longer listed (it is 1.5yrs old and obsolete I presume).
The server had to be rebuilt due to the simultaneous failure of all 4 RAID drives (drives good - RAID became corrupted beyond synching), and I never made a backup of the RAID software.
ASUS has no PRO boards (at least not on their site), but surely nVidia sold their 2200 chipsets to other board makers.

I found the manager, now I am trying to get the service icon like I had before - there used to be an installation package that did this before as I recall.

C:\NVIDIA\nForceWinXP64\6.66\IDE\WinXP\raidtool\NvRaidMan.exe

There should be a PDF on using Media Manager located on nVidia download page.
