We've been using the 3Ware 7000-series of PATA cards with great success as 
well.  Have even managed to get the 3DM management program running on our 
FreeBSD 5.4 systems.

We've tested the LSI MegaRAID 150-6 SATA card in one FreeBSD 5.4 system 
with good success, but they are giving us all kinds of grief in our 
RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 AS (32-bit) and Debian Linux 3.1 (32- and 
64-bit) systems.
