I have a motherboard with 4x SATAII-ports and without RAID. If I'll connect to these ports 4 identical
SATAII 250 GB 7200 rpm HDDs and install Linux, is it possible to have software RAID 0 using Linux?
Will such a Storage Node (E8400, 2x 1 GB DDR2 PC6400 RAM, iG33 integrated video) be comparable in
performance with the same computer as a Storage Node, but with PCI-Ex8 3WARE 512 MB SAS RAID 0 
controller installed with 2x 147 GB 15000 rpm HDDs? There will be 2x PCI-Ex1 GLAN NICs.
