Perhaps you should write that up for the HOW-TO/Wiki

That's useful stuff.


There's not much to write up, it just worked. One thing to remember is that /boot cannot be on RAID5. It has to be on RAID1 or no RAID. In the past, I've giving /boot it's own partition and used RAID5 for the rest. However, I thought I'd try it on RAID1 as an experiment. Next thing to try is enabling it to boot with one drive missing (failed).

I'm experimenting on an old IBM Netfinity server, with 6 SCSI drive slots. I've got 4 - 17 GB drives, 2 68 GB and 2 137 GB, so I have lots to play with. ;-)

The current configuration is everything but /home on the RAID1 & LVM array on the 2 68 GB drives and /home on a single 137 GB drive.

The only problem with this server is it's a bit slow. It has dual PIII CPUs and 1 GB memory.
