[CentOS] Installing CentOS 5.4 64bit on server with LSI SAS 1068E controller.

I just read the user manual on it.. It says the following...

IT Mode (Initiator and Target Mode)
This is a Non-RAID mode. To use this mode, be sure to fl ash an IT mode 
firmware to the EEPROM and to install an IT Mode driver to the system OS.

So, I'm confused, what point is a RAID controller that doesn't support 
RAID ?

Thanks, Billy
