  Most "cheap" IDE "RAID controllers" implement RAID in the device driver.
The card itself is just a regular IDE controller with a special BIOS.  The
CPU still does all the work, and you still have to deal with IDE bus
contention problems.

  For IDE hardware RAID, we have had good luck with 3Ware's Escalade series.
We have never tried anything beyond RAID-1 mirroring, though.
