Same issues here in Paris.

HPT370 on PCI card, Maxtor 40Gb hard drives...
_Impossible_ to disklabel the disks (which are easilly disklabelled 
through the integrated IDE controler of the motherboard).

The two HPT370 cards we bought (for the 4 Maxtor drives) to build a 
"nice" Samba Vinumed file server (and to show our NT guyz that they 
did not have to spend 3 times the amount of money we spent for a 
performant 120Gb RAID5 volume) are now on my desk, the drives are 
connected to the motherboard.
It works, but not the way I wanted it to.

Gona try on Monday with the recent STABLE changes of the IDE drivers.

Are you using current (as the list you're posting to) or stable ?
