My setup is currently as follows; 2 32gig WD Raptor's in RAID-0 via my onboard Nvidia chipset on my Asus AMD motherboard. I had Windows use the full span on the two disks after setting up the RAID-0 Array with an NTFS partition.
I would like to maintain the current state of my Windows partition while being able to install Fedora 7 on some of the reaming space of my RAID-0 partition. It has been a while sense I have installed Windows but I think I am able to allocate unused space into a separate partition as unformatted. I would imagine it would be the same under a Linux installation, just slightly a little more wordy.
I have searched the forums first and came up with this link
which seems pretty close to what I would like to accomplish. I am more or less looking for a little reassurance as to if that is an accurate walk-through or if not I could be pointed in the correct direction.
In my haste I forgot the most important tool of all -Google.
This link talks about how to resize partitions.
This link refers to how to setup a RAID-0 installation on Ubuntu.
I am unsure of the relevance or more so the crossover of commands between that and Ubuntu.
I'm sure if I actually had the guts to follow the steps it would turn out fine. But at the risk of loosing whatever important data I forgot to backup from my computer before I began my initial indevure into installing Linux onto my actual computer, instead of the safe way via VMware.
My friend is just as interested as I am, also being fairly new to the Linux world, as to how exactly to do this.
