Can someone please offer advice on the best way to RAID (mirror) the following setup, with Linux configuration, not BIOS?
Current hardware (box for shared fileserver serving about 40 workstations):
hda - 80 Gb HD dual boot XP Pro/ Mandrake 10.1 core systems and LILO
hde - 200 Gb Maxtor HD - primary data storage
hdg - 200 Gb Maxtor HD - mirrored data storage
with following partitions:
hde1: 50 Gb (/home mount-point)
hde5: 30 Gb (read-only archive - no need to mirror)
hde6: 100 Gb (primary shared folder for entire office)
hdg1: 50 Gb
hdg5: 130 Gb
I would like to mirror "hde1" and "hde6" onto the hdg drive partitions, respectively.
What is the best way to setup RAID for this? (never setup RAID before, so please answer accordingly.....)
