Unless you're using a fully hardware RAID card, it's best not to use the RAID supplied on the card. This is because the Linux drivers don't support the software RAID that the cards do.

There's a lot of information on the net on how to set up RAID using Linux's LVM or similar, which doesn't need a software RAID controller to work (and will work with the cheap cards/onboard 'RAID' adapters)
Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
