Question for Epox Tech

Since I cant seem to get any info on this from emailing epox or anywhere else on the web, maybe you can find out.
I bought an EPOX EP DRO2P3 udma 100 Raid card to compliment my 8kha+ and it works beautifully(especially for 23$)
http://overclockage.50megs.com/ssmehd.jpg

My question is this card has 2 settings "safe" and "performance"
if I remeber correctly, point being it doesn't say what the actual stripe size is i.e. 16k,32k or 64k

Can you find out what these settings equal in "k" for me?
The reason I ask is I want to optomize my cluster size accordingly.

I believe 32kb.

Everyone always asks why Aralion instead of Highpoint or Promise or AMI for this card - this performance shows it is such a good option.

thanks epox tech, however that kind of answers my question.
like I said there are 2 options when you say 32k do you mean the "performance" setting = 32k? what about the "safe" setting??
is there anyone there at epox who can give you definate answers on these two settings?
thanks in advance!!

Is it possible to boot off the array when you use this card?

Question

I thought the Epox Tech did tell you it is 32k, If I am wrong, I'm sorry.

As far as safe mode or performance mode. The difference would be the same as setting up the computer. Safe mode would be somewhat slower and insure non data loss, with data loss being the prime objective. Performance mode, I would think mean that this be the prime objective as data transfer. Maybe there could be some loss of data, under certain cercumstances.

I have never used Raid, nor set up one, but in common scense the difference would be somwhat as described above.
