    supported SATA PCI cards


    HI, newbie here.

    I am running FC3 and want to turn it into my own Fileserver.

    I have already made the decision I prefer to run Software RAID. ( Already been through all the discussion

    I want to purchase 5 250GB Hard Drives to put into my RAID array.

    Already have 1 open SATA slot on the Motherboard.
    Plenty of open PCI cards.

    Trying to double check that my plan of purchasing 2, 2 port SATA PCI cards will let me build my array. Any ideas on what cards are supported would be appreciated.

    Not much to say.. I would go w/promise. Remember that software RAID is not a real RAID. You will wont to have a up2date kernel or a driver tailerd to the kernel version being used.

    I would like to see it. If its money then I understand but any thing else would be a joke.
