Getting Promise Fasttrak 376 to work on Ubuntu Karmic 9.10

Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 cannot recognize the hdd if you have this old controller.
This solution worked like a charm for me:

  1. Boot Ubuntu LiveCD as usual
  2. Once booted, run a terminal and type: sudo apt-get remove dmraid
  3. Check everything went fine with the following command (value must be 0): echo $?
  4. Double click on Install Ubuntu 9.10
  5. Proceed as usual.
