I have a Qosmio G25 with this same(or similar) chipset with the sata
raid, yes it has 2 hard drives, and I have the exact same problem.
Ubuntu does not see the hard drives. This laptop rocks, but it is kind
of depressing to not be able to use my favorite distro on it. I have
been stuck with windows on it for the time being.

Getting Ubuntu on this machine would rock so hard!!!



P.S. - I am patiently awaiting working dapper install CD's so that I
can try with the 2.6.15 kernel directly and will certainly let you
guys know how it goes.
