Jeremy - 
Your best bet is mdadm, the Linux software RAID solution. ZFS is also an option on Solaris, OpenSolaris.

Hardware being best, what's better between software and gluster?

The absolute best would be hardware RAID. If that isn't an option mdadm (linux) is your better choice.

Suppose I've got 5 disks in a system connected to my IB network, and I 
want to host a Gluster filesystem on it for max I/O (large block, 
multiple client). 
Should I raid0 the 5 disks at the linux level, or the gluster level?
