I have a PowerMacintosh G4/667, which has an ACARD 6880M RAID Controller. When I boot from 2006.1 CD, it shows no hard disk devices are present.
lspci shows the card as an ATP-865 device. So, what should I do next, to have my disks recognised?

musikaras,

The driver for your card is provided by the
Code:
AEC62XX chipset support
kernel option. When you make your own kernel, be sure to choose that to make DMA transfers work.

Meanwhile
Code:
modprobe ide-mod
should provide limited functionality, if its not loaded already.
