I have purchased mandrake 10.1 and i am having some problems configuring my hard drives in a raid1 setup. I currently have a 74gb SATA set up. I want to add 2 250 with a raid1 configuration, i entered disk drake, and set up the raid, and i also configured it in the bios. When in disk drake, i was given the choice to create raid0, raid1... etc. This made me wonder, if it gives me these options, then it must be a software raid rather that a bios level hardware raid.
so 1st, is it a software raid???
2nd, is there any aparent difference between bios (hardware) level and software level raids.
and 3rd, is there anyway to make it a bios (hardware) level raid.
*note* drives are sata drives.
