We use this here with Linux and RAID5. In fact, we first installed the
newest firmware, which is necessary AFAIK with RAID5. And you shouldn't
expect too much speed, RAID5-writing is not very fast with this IDE
RAID. As the IDE-array is only the backup of our SCSI-fileserver, we are
not to worried about write-speed here (we use rsync, so only changes are
written to the array - and in case that we have to restore, the
read-performance is good).

CU, Lars.
