NAME
     pst -- device driver for Promise Supertrak	SX6000

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device pst

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   pst_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     This driver is for	the Promise Supertrak SX6000 ATA hardware RAID con-
     troller.  It supports (in hardware) RAID levels 0,	1, 0+1,	3, 5 and JBOD
     on	up to 6	ATA disk drives, including automatic rebuild and hotswap, and
     supports signalling disk status on	LEDs on	Promise	Superswap disk enclo-
     sures.  The Supertrak line	of controllers does not	support	non-disk
     devices.

HARDWARE
     The pst driver supports the Promise Supertrak SX6000 ATA hardware RAID
     controller.

NOTES
     The pst driver does not support manipulating the RAID from	the OS,	RAIDs
     need to be	set up from the	onboard	BIOS.  However,	hot swap, hot spare,
     and automatic rebuilds are	supported without a reboot.

HISTORY
     The pst driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.7.

AUTHORS
     The pst driver and	man page was written by	Soren Schmidt
     <sos@FreeBSD.org>.
