Centos 5.6 & Marvell 88se6145 RAID controller

How to install CentOS 5.6 on Marvell 88se6145 RAID controller (ASUS P5BV-C/4L motherboard)?
I have tried all official ASUS drivers, CentOS does not see RAID.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Reading FAQ & Readme First is recommended for new users.

Motherboard RAID controllers are to my knowledge all FakeRAID/HostRAID. It is generally preferable to turn off RAID in the BIOS for such controllers and to use Software RAID instead.
