Not sure they work in alphas, but the only IDE RAID card that actually does 
the RAID is 3ware.  All the promise and HPT cards are is an IDE controller 
with hooks for a Windows soft-RAID driver (which is nowhere near as good as 
the linux kernel soft-RAID).   If you want to experiment, I think you can get 
an older 2 channel card for around 40USD from some of the online liquidators.
