I am not too much help, but tell you what I know. ;)
I have a High Point IDE Raid controller, with 2x 40GB maxtor 5400rpm
ATA100 drives attached in a mirror array. They are formatted with the
entire space running ext3. I have never had a problem with them. I am
sure this card is not a hardware raid though, so sorry! But at least in
my experience, ext3 has no problems on this setup. The PC is a 133Mhz
Pentium1 with 196MB memory. So, it is not a SMP kernel.
What do you have for a hardware raid controller? Maybe this might be of
So, maybe not much help, but just my 0.02€.
