I'd suggest not bothering with RAID on any motherboard.

Set the ports to ordinary IDE or SATA as the case may be, then use the 
software RAID capability in Linux.  I run a software RAID5 with 
hotspare, and have successfully increased RAID capacity while online 
using the mdadm tools and JFS as the filesystem.

This also leaves you free of any incompatibilities if you ever need to 
replace the motherboard.

Just my 2c.
