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'm building a small business linux server and would like to incorporate a hardware RAID. I have never done a hardware RAID with linux before and am looking for a solution that is inexpensive, uses IDE drives, and is relatively easy to build.
I had my eye on:
HighPoint RocketRaid 100 and 133 and 3ware 7006-2, since they were all within my price range.
Can anyone suggest one of those, or any other one that would fit my needs?
By the way, I will probably be running Fedora (latest stable version) or RedHat 9.
The only hardware RAID that you listed is 3ware. Highpoint is software RAID and same goes for INTEL, VIA, Silicon Image, Promise. I suggest using Linux built-in software RAID for Highpoint, VIA, INTEL, Silicon Image, and Promise controllers.

I'm not quite sure I understand. So the highpoint cards don't actually do any processing, only the 3ware cards do? Then what is the need for the card in the first place?
