Question creating RAID 10 via kickstart

I have to create RAID 10 in RHEL4 on some Dell PowerEdge systems. The RAID 1 was created at the BIOS/hardware level, and I need to configure the RAID 0 during OS installation in the kickstart file. Each system has 6 750 GB disks, mirrored as RAID 1: most systems have SATA drives, but a few will have SAS instead. We usually create a 1 GB boot partition and turn the rest into an LVM.

I have created RAID 5 this way before, but not RAID 0 (or 10). What "part" and "raid" statements are typically used in the kickstart file for RAID 0? And would these change at all between SATA and SAS drives?


kickstart, raid
