Just in case anyone ends up finding this discussion with a similar
question. I found a PCI-E 3ware card here:
It's called the 9650SE-2LP, and is just over a hundred quid (plus

According to this KB article
http://www.3ware.com/KB/article.aspx?id=14546 The 9650SE should be
supported out of the box with Hardy as Hardy is running a 2.6.24
kernel and 3ware drivers supporting that model are included in kernels
2.6.23 and later.

If i decide to go down the hardware RAID route then I think that'd
probably the card to use.
