This is my first time using Linux and I have installed Linux Mint Debian [AMD 64 Bit Edition] onto my machine, with a Dual-Boot with Windows 7. I have completed the installation and dual-boot setup without a problem.
Now that I am in Linux Mint, I have two main issues that I can't work out how to resolve. They are:
1. I have dual monitors, but only the Primary monitor will display.
2. I have a Raid 5 array on the machine, and it is not recognised.
Details of my machine are as follows:

From the above, disks 3, 4 & 5 are in a Raid 5 array controlled by the motherboard.
Can someone please give me some guidance on how to bring up the dual screens, and to be able to access the RAID 5 disk array.
