I use these in my servers (RHEL3 and RH9) and they work great: http://www.3ware.com/products/serial_ata8000.asp
Problem is, they're a bit on the expensive side.  But for me, the Monitoring utility and the ease of use make them well worth it.

Another good card (Especially for the money) is the Hi-Point RocketRAID 1540, but I've never used it with Linux, I use it RAID10 in my Windows server.

I also have a Promise FastTrak 150 SX4 I'm using with RH9 that works well, but I didn't set up the monitoring utility.  I like the Escalade cards MUCH better.
