Ok...first bit of help is to use a better subject for your question, other than "help me".
If you'd like to know if it'll use the HBA you have installed, it would help if you actually TOLD US what kind of HBA it is. Also, what version and distro of Linux???
You can set up a SAN type environment, using ISCSI, either over and HBA/Fiber, or through gigabit copper. Copper is cheaper for home use, and saturating a 1GB/s pipe at home is going to be a challenge. Fiber HBA's are only 2GB/s (although some newer ones are 4GB).
