Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I thought you said even Raid 10 was slower than the test report I found, but that it was much closer to normal. May be something silly like crosstalk on a trace on the card or something slowing down one port hard to say but I found a lot of consumer reviews talking about issues with port 4, even after changing out the cables and drives, with / without backplane . . .
I just read an article last night that Intel is going to support SAS on the motherboard. 10 years ago they scoffed at software raid. They figure with the newer processors with multiple cores RAID 5 can be handled with 2 - 3 % of CPU and software raid is actually faster than some raid cards.
I am interested to know what you find out, so please post back your results.
