RAID 5 solutions?

I'm speccing a server for departmental use (email, web cache, NAT,
samba - normal stuff) and I was looking at RAID 5 solutions.  I'd
rather not use vinum since I have no experience with it, so I was
wondering if anyone had recommendations of RAID cards which are
well supported under FreeBSD.

Using SCSI would be a lot more expensive than IDE; does it have
any significant advantages for this application?  I'm not
expecting the machine to be pounding its harddrives 24x7.
