It depends on the hardware you have. I am currently running a single
(old) scsi disk on the raid controller at home. It has been up without
incident or reboot since last Saturday when I installed 9.1.
When I can afford to purchase more disks I will start using the onboard
hardware raid setup since the onboard LSI SATA raid is not yet supported
in the 2.6 kernel. Performance should be a lot better as well.
