I don't have much experience on this area either but Linux has been popular in servers and so SCSI Raids and ATA Raids could be available in a reasonable form. I am just nervous of the application on Sata Raids.

I changed my mobo recently and a few distros installed in Sata disks refused to boot because my new board has Sata II capability. These distros suddenly cannot recognised the Sata disks they have been installed and opening on! They boot again after I migrated them to IDE disks.

Bearing in mind XP still needs the proprietary mobo's Raid driver to work with every RAID controller program and some Linux are still having problem to recognise some Sata disks, let alone in RAID setups.
I will try anything, I recently formatted the pc so everything is backed up so no great loss if there is a problem.

Arrow GNU/Linux Installed to SATA HD, but new O\S not recognize the HD after reboot. RAIDs?

Which distros? Had same problem installd on 1 sata; FC5, The Dapper Drake, oSUSE10.1. In Slackware 11.0 I used sata kernel option=same problem .
Tyan S2865 w/ latest BIOS, Linux distros would not recognize nVidia sata RAIDS at all, still saw as separate HDs. Must check PATA RAIDS
Single sata HD (or RAID 0, 1) on NewEgg PNY S-CURE `Data Protection Card' 5103 {RAID 3 capable} is still not recognized by any O\S, M$ or GNU/Linux!
Will try my various PATA & or SATA toys w/ VIA, Sil 3112, 3132, 3512 RAID controller PCI add-in cards later.

All my BIOS (Tyan, GA, ABit, SL mobo) or M$ doz sees SATA as SCSI I noticed. btw, How do I attempt migrate from SATA to IDE?
