A SiS3114 is NOT hardware raid.  It is software, just secret proprietary
software.  If you want hardware raid with open source drivers, you have
to get a 3ware card or a scsi raid card.  Those are the only choices at
the moment.  Other hardware ide/sata raid cards exist, but not with open
source drivers that I am aware off.
