I'm just about to build a new server and I'm looking for recommendations on 
what hardware to use.  

I'm happy with either a brand name, or building my own, but would like a 
hardware RAID controller to run a pair of disks as RAID1 that is actually 
compatible with and manageable through Linux.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.
