I have four SATA Seagate 400g drives I'd like to set up as RAID 0+1 or 5.  My current mob, a P5AD2-E Deluxe will not support this according to "expert" on the ASUS techrep line.  Any suggestions for a mob which will do this with hardware?  Thanks in advance.

For less than a motherboard (atleast one with raid 5, 10 or 01 support) you could just buy a sata raid controller like this one

It seems that the mobo does not support Raid 0+1, but it does support raid 1+0 which is better since it offers a tolerance for multiple points of failure (each raid 1 member can tolerate a single drive failure) verus a tolerance of a single point of failure for raid 0+1 and raid 5:
RAID 0+1

RAID 1+0 or RAID 10

RAID 5

If you are installing an os on this raid, RAID 1+0 is preferable even at the expense of two drives.

Thanks for the answers.  I believe I will try the SATA controller board and try to end up with RAID 10.  It's a whole lot of re-installing but what the heck.
