Yuck (if by ATARAID you mean those PoS controllers from, e.g., Promise --
these are slow as a snail compared to md software RAID), and Yuck for LVM
RAID too (slow, limited, cubersome).
Good software RAID is md raid :) with LVM on top of it, of course. LVM is
a good thing, if you do it right and never bother with 'striping' on the LVM
layer. Do it in the md RAID layer (or hardware layer, for that matter).
