Many...have you tried Google?? We'll be glad to assist if you're stuck, but we're not going to look things up for you. Just putting "linux raid5 howto" into Google pulls up some great tutorials.

And you say RAID5...do you mean hardware RAID, or software RAID? Setup is different for both.

Hardware RAID configuration is mostly done via the machine BIOS.

Software RAID can be configured via mdadm command.

Install the mdadm package on your machine & check the command usage.

It is so simple.

Good luck.
