Get one based on the Sil 3124-2 for Sata II, it's not supported by older kernels and the driver hasn't been backported to 2.4 yet but it's an open documented design an it's good to buy from manufacturers that help OS.

You may be unable to find one that isn't PCI-X, but don't worry, I run one in a standard pci slot, also it supports FIS-based switching so you can expand it with port multipliers to control 20 drives.

Do you have a link for your card?
