RAID - raidframe vs hardware/controller

I'm about to implement RAID in my home server, and would like to know the relative merits of using software raid(4) raidframe vs "hardware" raid as implemented in the hard-drive controller.

Is it possible to use raid-set as boot device?

Are they equally confusing to configure (specifically WRT labelling!)?

Are they equally easy to "manage" (swap and rebuild failing member)?

Any other considerations?
