Hardware RAID support? Which controller best to use?

Hi all,

In addition to the questions posed in the message I sent earlier today, 
I would like to know which SATA hardware controllers incl. RAID 10 
support are working well with FreeBSD 5.4 or 6 amd64...

Note: the motherboard of the machine that will be used will most likely 
not have 64-bit PCI slots, but rather only normal 32-bit PCI and 
PCI-express slots.

Can anyone recommend me some good solutions?

Also: the motherboard featured a built in Silicon RAID controller. I've 
previously tried to get FreeBSD to recognise such a controller, but it 
didn't recognise the RAID array properly and simply identified the 
drives individually instead of as 1 RAID-1 array.

it looks like this might work better under v6 but I'm not certain...

Does anyone have any suggestions? I know what to do SCSI wise (which is 
what I have myself), but these guys really want to use SATA....
