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.

This setup is covered on page 28 of Software-RAID-HOWTO
Converting a non-RAID REDHAT System to run on Software Raid.
Even though I am using SuSE.
Now when I use YAST2 to create soft Raid there really isn't much documentation
in the YAST2 Manual. Ok during the initial installation, I go to expert partition Mgr.
create the above. Using EXT3, as the RAID create instruction indicate. Then I click on the
RAID option and click on create RAID this is on the first Drive hda, it indicates that I must have 2 partitions of 0xfd. Now when you create a software RAID to you create the RAID on both drives or just 1. Like if I change all of the partitions of hdc to 0xfd. Now if I did that which drive would be the mirrored drive. I am setting up a DNS server that I have installed soft RAID several times on and I have still not been able to get it to work properly. Probably because I have never set one up.
Looks like I'll need SuSE 2 Disk they are offering for free. I tried the soft raid setup per GoFacts and was unable to
format drives. Actually it lockup the system. I contacted SuSE and they indicated I would have to get the 2 CD Utils
set they offer. So I have ordered those. Although I wish they would offer the ISO for the disks.
