In Reply to: [gentoo-dev] Compaq SmartArray support on LiveCD by Rumi Szabolcs
1 The SmartArray on Compaq and HP-servers are supported on LiveCDs even before
2 2004.0 came out and every version after that (including current). From both
3 2.4 and 2.6 kernel you can access the SmartArray. You don't even need to add
4 a boot option during the boot of the LiveCD (unless you want to boot a
5 2.6/smp kernel). You can access the "logical drives"
6 as /dev/discs/discx/partx
