We haven't bought any hardware (RAID controllers included) for 
FreeBSD implementation yet.  We're planning to buy a few server 
machines (probably 2-3 at the moment) that will be ready to go 
for FreeBSD with RAID 1+0.  We were considering installing 
FreeBSD 6.0 on the new machines, so long as the resulting 
configurations proved stable; we may have to go with 5.4 for 
the moment until we can identify a RAID 1+0 card that works 
reliably under 6.0.  

I appreciate your willingness to work through this issue.  
Whatever info you can collect would be helpful...

When we buy and install the machines, if there are "standard" 
Controller performance benchmarks that I can run, I'll be happy 
to post the test results.
