RAID-5 Setup commands
What is the easiest Noobiest way to set up a RAID-5 Array using SATA drives on a P965G Intel chipset.
Is RAID apart of any of the GUI's? What commands do I need to use? Any hints on HOW to setup this RAID. I heard someone mention labeling their drives so that you can tell which one dies, but what is the best way to do this (How would I know which drive is labeled what)
I have almost no clue on how to use Linux. I was tempted to use Windows 2003, but I couldnt find a definitive answer if it supports expanding the RAID while keeping the data on the current array.
Please Help, I have a Machine about to pop up at my door today, and I don't even know what Distro to use, If I should use a GUI, or the commands to build the array.
