Yes, they work very well. The 8xxx series uses IIRC PATA-to-SATA adapater, so they are no real SATA controler, the 9xxx series are real SATA1 controler while the 955x series are SATA2 controler.
I don't know how well they work with Linux "hotplug" stuff, but I do know that you can hot swap the drives within RAIDs easily, as that's all handled by the card itself.
That's right. You can use a GUI or a CLI to administrate your array. But the supported RAID level are 0, 1, 10, 5 and 50, but not 6. Shade and sweet water!
