you have basically 2 choices ...

- leave the ide as an ide disks ... ( software raid )
	- get a $50 ide controller ( 4 drives on it ) and 4 drives on the mb

- convert the ide to look like a scsi drives ( tho not really )
	- 3ware 7500-8 series  for 8 "scsi" disks on it

- or get a real hardware raid card for lots of $$$
	- mylex, adaptec

- for a list of hardware raid card that is supported by linux
