comment Move RAID1 to new machine
I am installing Ubuntu on a new computer, and will be physically moving two hard drives from the old server to the new one and would like to keep them RAIDed.

comment Ubuntu Server “fakeraid” RAID5 installation
I believe that hardware controller is what's called Fakeraid -- the controller presents to the operating system one "special" hard disk, and the operating system has some special drivers for interacting with it. This is useful for Microsoft Windows, which would have problems installing to RAID otherwise (last time I checked). Ubuntu doesn't require this, and can unify the hard disk on their own. However, whether you use softraid or fakeraid, the processing is still being done on the CPU, rather than on dedicated hardware. If you dont dual boot, I'd use softraid in case you swap out the mobo.
