Hi all,

Would anybody care to suggest a third party SATA-RAID card that works out of 
the box with CentOS 6, without having to jump through hoops to make it work?

The card should preferably be able to connect ten harddrives, but I guess 
three four-port cards should work as well. There's no need for anything fancy 
really, as long as I can create a single big software-raid on it at CentOS 

So far I've tried a Highpoint RocketRAID 2740 and a LSI 9201-16i without too 
much success.

Thanks for any suggestions in advance!
