After several hard drive failures, I have decided to build myself a RAID 5 server (hardware raid) to serve as a file server on my home-office network. At the same time I have decided to move out of my Microsoft/Apple comfort zone and try another OS. After researching various RAID controllers I have pretty much settled on a LSI Logic MegaRaid 300-8XLP card and following the recommendation of a friend has led me to try Ubuntu for my OS.

Now, my question is, will this card work on Ubuntu? LSI do not provide any drivers themselves and although I have seen that earlier LSI cards work on Ubuntu I wanted to confirm this before I went out and spent any money.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and I apologize ahead of time if this is the wrong forum/this question has already been answered.
