Promise or 3Ware?

I now need to buy some hardware to set up a 2-disk RAID-1 array for a
server.  The server will run debian with kernel 2.6.  The cost
(money-wise) is not really an issue.  The disks are ATA/133 (already
purchased).  Which would you recommend, and why?

    Promise FastTrak TX2000 controller
        with 2 Promise SuperSwap 1000 host-swappable drive bays

    3Ware Escalade 7006-2 controller (or 7506-4LP model)
        with 1 3Ware RDC-400 hot-swappable drive cage

Say, what's the difference between a 32-bit/66MHz and a 64-bit/66MHz
PCI card?  Are there limitations as to what motherboards they will
work on?  This particular machine is an older PII.
