Does anyone know if Ubuntu 14.04 provides drivers for this card (Newegg)? Will it work plug and play style?

Background... Reusing a pc from 2006. The mobo SATA ports are bad so I am buying a SATA controller to bypass this issue. I currently have no drive running Ubuntu on this system. So the pc would be booting from Ubuntu boot DVD on a new SATA controller and a freshly formatted HDD.
