I have had two 250 Gb drives on the same channel with raid 0 in windoz when I 
first brought the board. At the time the chip was not recognised in Linux. 
The SATA drives will have software raid and will get backed up to DVD R. i 
don't mind loosing a few tv recordings if the ITE raid set up has a problem.
