Correct, as far as it goes.

Depending on the SATA controller, it may be possible that
you can use a port multiplier, which allows you to connect 5
drives per port - Giving you a total of 6*5 = 30 drives

Support for these devices is going into kernel 2.6.24.

You would then use Linux software RAID. Or, with SVN Myth,
storage groups.
