	I ran into the same problem with my Dell system that had onboard
SATA raid. I couldn't get it to work without seeing both SATA drives as
individual drives. What I did instead was to use a 3Ware card to mirror the
drives. I'm just not a big fan of SW raid, so I go hardware when I can. So
far, all I have is the basic CentOS installed, this is my first time using
CentOS since RH 7.3 days.
