If you are able spend a few more bucks, you might want to get 
a 3ware raid controller. We just put one in a server and 
are quite impressed with it. The server has 4 drives, and the 
we set it up RAID 5 with a spare, the fourth drive stays 
spun down until you pull one of the other drives, then it spins 
up and rebuilds the volume.
