Vorsicht ! A lot of these so-called IDE-RAID chipsets are not doing hardware
RAID (*) but are actually providing their own software RAID via a special
'doze driver. This IS not true of them all e.g. 3Ware but it's true of most
of the cheapies e.g. Promise (at least the one I bought, which I use only as
an ATA-100 controller in an older box).

Do you already have big speakers on your HiFi ? You'll need them to hear
anything over those fans :-)
(*) All RAID is of course software, but generally when one refers to
hardware RAID, one means a RAID system with a dedicated CPU which the
cheapies don't have - what do you expect for 50 Euro :-)
