Thanks for your contribution.  It is greatly appreciated.  It  is always good 
to hear of another source of information, particularly when it is "official".

The source I've always relied upon is http://www.linux-ata.org/ which
is the 'official' website of the libata driver (these days used for
almost all SATA controllers and some IDE controllers).  It contains a
list of supported hardware and a FAQ about "RAID" controllers.
