Ok, I missed the beginning of this thread. Is it currently using Intel
(aka fakeRAID)? If so, it's *not* in the BIOS, but rather you have to
watch as it comes up, before it gets to the CentOS boot. You'll see
something that tells you to hit <ctrl-something>, and in there, in the
firmware, you'll disable it.

Note that if you do, I believe that everything will be gone, and you'll
have to rebuild or restore. I don't *think* software RAID will recognize
what the fakeRAID left, though I could be wrong.
