Ako to urobit ked mam RH7.1 Nasiel som driver ktory obsahuje subory DAC960.c
DAC960.h a DAC960.patch  Ak som to spravne pochopil linux tam uz musi
byt.V readme je napisane

This distribution was prepared for Linux kernel version 2.2.19 or 2.4.12.

To install the DAC960 RAID driver, you may use the following commands,
replacing "/usr/src" with wherever you keep your Linux kernel source tree:

  cd /usr/src
  tar -xvzf DAC960-2.2.11.tar.gz (or DAC960-2.4.11.tar.gz)
  mv README.DAC960 linux/Documentation
  mv DAC960.[ch] linux/drivers/block
  patch -p0 < DAC960.patch (if DAC960.patch is included)
  cd linux
  make config
  make depend
  make bzImage (or zImage)

Then install "arch/i386/boot/bzImage" or "arch/i386/boot/zImage" as your
standard kernel, run lilo if appropriate, and reboot.

To create the necessary devices in /dev, the "make_rd" script included in
"DAC960-Utilities.tar.gz" from http://www.dandelion.com/Linux/ may be used.
LILO 21 and FDISK v2.9 include DAC960 support; also included in this archive
are patches to LILO 20 and FDISK v2.8 that add DAC960 support, along with
statically linked executables of LILO and FDISK.  This modified version 
will allow booting from a DAC960 controller and/or mounting the root file
system from a DAC960.

Red Hat Linux 6.0 and SuSE Linux 6.1 include support for Mylex PCI RAID
controllers.  Installing directly onto a DAC960 may be problematic from 
Linux distributions until their installation utilities are updated.

                  INSTALLATION NOTES

Before installing Linux or adding DAC960 logical drives to an existing Linux
system, the controller must first be configured to provide one or more 
drives using the BIOS Configuration Utility or DACCF.  Please note that 
there are only at most 6 usable partitions on each logical drive, systems
requiring more partitions should subdivide a drive group into multiple 
drives, each of which can have up to 6 usable partitions.  Also, note 
that with
large disk arrays it is advisable to enable the 8GB BIOS Geometry (255/63)
rather than accepting the default 2GB BIOS Geometry (128/32); failing to 
so do
will cause the logical drive geometry to have more than 65535 cylinders 
will make it impossible for FDISK to be used properly.  The 8GB BIOS 
can be enabled by configuring the DAC960 BIOS, which is accessible via Alt-M
during the BIOS initialization sequence.
