Hardware SATA Raid Controller

Hi ppl,

	I'm assembling an internal server for my company, and we need both a lot of 
diskspace (for shared files, software backups, devel repository, etc) and 
some security on disk failures.

	I thought  that a Raid5 with several smaller disks would solve our problem, 
but that brings me other. I would need a raid controller, that do it by 
hardware, not that sh*t that (at least some) Promise/FastTrack controllers do 
(or what I managed to make them do - raid by software), and that at the same 
work with debian as "out of the box" as possible.

	One solution would be to buy a HP server, with a raid controller, but that 
solution is a bit over my budget, so I the solution goes by buying the 
RaidController and assembly the server.

	My question is: What Raid HARDWARE controllers did you managed to configure 
in Debian without (too) much work? Which ones for RAID5 and SATA?

	Thank you  very much for your help,
