Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been a linux user for several years but know enough to be dangerous. I am trying to set up my new computer with two 150G Raptor hard drives up as raid 0 configuration. They are the only two drives in the machine. I can get the bios set up to configure the two drives but I am doing something wrong in the software installation.
Hardware: Q6600, evga 122-Ca-NF68-a1 MB, two Raptor 10,000 rpm HDs,
Software: Fedora 8.
Attempting to set up as Raid 0
As Fedora 8 sees the two HDs as one "mapper" type drive because the MB bios is configured as raid 0.
In the LVM group it all looks ok? I don't really know I have neve set up a raid config with LVM.
Question: Do I need to set up software raid within LVM. I.E. set up two even partitions, keeping boot and the / and /boot out of the raid?
I have attempted to do nothing with in the LVM and let it run as set by the installation software but later as Fedora 8 cranks along in the install process I get a "serious error" about not being able to continue.
If I dont set up the raid configuration in the MB Bios (no raid), Fedora installation loads up and operates just fine.
I have read numerous articles and forums but I haven't read one that explains what I do from the "bios to the linux" installation using LVM.
