I did not see it listed and afaik there is no official support.  The nearest 
thing I saw was a manual entry on ataraid from quite a while back suggesting 
that RAID 5 wasn't supported, but I was wondering if anyone had managed to get 
any success with the card (since from my understanding ataraid is for OS 
controlled RAID and I'm looking at a hardware/firmware controller). Also, I did 
forget to mention that the system in question is FreeBSD 6.1 and I'm looking to 
boot off of this array (although if anyone was a working system that won't boot 
from the array I'm still interested).
