PCI Raid 5 cards for FreeBSD

I have seen both the Promise and 3ware raid cards mentioned over time in
this mailing list.

I would like to be able to run a 1-2TB raid 5 SATA on FreeBSD 4.9.  Is
anyone using a card from these suppliers?

Will FreeBSD install on a Raid 5 array (after it has been configured in the
Array BIOS)?

Does FreeBSD have any in built driver/mechanism to monitor the array's

Is there another SATA Raid controller company out there I have missed, that
covers FreeBSD?
