Just for information!
For simple RAID0 or RAID1 purposes with very low budget I can highly
recommend the Dawicontrol DC-100 (HPT372 chip, ~45?) and the DC-133
(SiliconImage 0680 Chipset, ~55?).
They both work like a charm. I just installed 5.1-release on both
without any problem (ar0!)
I can remember some c't (famous german computer magazine) tests where
the adaptec controller were much weaker that e.g. the Dawicontrols.
