We have acquired some IBM xServers which have an integrated raid

Is there already support for HostRaid? Are there drivers for it?From which kernel version and where do I find it in the config?
HostRaid is just software RAID; you can ignore it and let Linux use the
underlying SCSI devices via the standard aic79xx driver.
What do you mean it is just software RAID? Can you explain?
On the servers there is a configuration option to enable HostRaid, and when
I turn that option ON the mirroring between the two discs start and after a
while they are mirrored.
I think that in terms of performance it should be better to used the
"on-board" HostRaid facility.
Don't you think so?
