Even without FakeRAID it doesnt work, it doesnt detect the drives
attached to the controller ( configured as normal SATA in BIOS, not
RAID ), with the beta ISO of dapper server ( .20 kernel ) it works
flawlessly, the bug is filed at Malone ( really 3 ) and I stucked at .20
kernel waiting to upgrade to a working kernel.
