3Ware (http://www.3ware.com) card are usually well supported on Linux. Theses cards are often considered as some of the bests hardware RAID controllers for GNU/Linux or BSD systems. 3Ware supports Linux and provide an opensource kernel driver which is part of Linux since ages.
Linux kernel drivers
There is two drivers for 3ware cards:
|3w_xxxx||3Ware Eskalad 7000 and 8000 series|
|3w_9xxx||3Ware Eskaled 9000 series|
You should not expect any problems with theses drivers which are known to be mature and stable \\ We don't know any current Linux distrubtion which miss theses drivers so no additional step should be required to get it working.
