The problem is they're not looking for hardware RAID at all, in addition 
to the $400 price froogle comes up with.  Better option might be this one...
It's fairly 'dumb' as far as hardware RAID goes, and about twice the 
price of the Supermicro controller, but it's cheaper and will probably 
give better performance than low end Promise and HighPoint cards.  It's 
also multilane, so you need breakout cables or a compatible backplane.
