Not cheap, but very nice.  I'm running an Adaptec 2410SA SATA RAID
card with four drives.  There are Adaptec supported drivers for Red
Hat and SuSE.  I'm running RH 9 and bought the card primarily for RAID

A cheaper route, which you may like better if you never plan on
getting another SATA drive, is the 1210SA card.  It only supports two
disks, but does do RAID 0 and 1.  That one also has Adaptec supported
drivers for Red Hat and SuSE.

Nice thing about vendor supported drivers is that you can call tech
support if you have any trouble installing the card.
