Yes, you are absolutely right, I have mixed the message on a mistake. But I really at first have established all patches on source texts of a kernel. And modules for the controller of a parent payment are available only for versions of a kernel 2.4.18 and 2.4.20. And when I try to compile and load them I receive the message, that it not that version of a kernel. :( The order of my actions such: I have remounted /tmp and have increased it up to 400 Mb # mount tmpfs /tmp -t tmpfs -osize=400M And also has remounted /usr/src Also has create the symlynk /tmp/kernel/linux-2.4.32/usr/src/linux Has applied patches linux-2.4.32-ow1 and patch-cryptoloop-jari-2.4.32-ow1 Has copied /boot/.config in a tree of source codes And # make menuconfig Has included emulation SCSI in the form of the module, support SATA, controllers # make dep; make clean; make bzImage; make modules I load the module of emulation SCSI. And then, when I try to load modules of the controller I receive mistakes. >> The question (partially) was solved switching of a disk on other controller of a same payment, >> Which has earned at once, but has given speed of work with a disk >> hdparm-t/dev/hdb1 ~ 3.3 MB/sec >> And it on a SATA-disk!

You are absolutely right, I had to specify in BIOS what to consider SATA-devices on the given controller as IDE-disks. Then, when I have made a monolithic kernel with support of my devices and was loaded from it speed of work with a disk became 56-58 Mb/sec If I do any inexcusable mistakes I ask to not judge me strictly. Before I used and I use on servers of Linux-system which use other approach in installation. It Trustix Secure Linux, RedHat, Slackware. But always wished to try in work Openwall Linux. Now I study system. It all more and is pleasant to me more. :) Certainly there are many questions which I try to solve all over again, And if it is impossible - to address to community.
