RAID at CentOS

I have currently a centOS that i use as proxy and mailserver.

Unfortunately i did not make raid from the start.

Is there a possibility to add now a driver and go for at least raid1?

Thank you

Of course you can.

You might need to re-partition un-mounted partitions. For this you will need the gparted. Then you need to use mdadm to create your raids, and then edit /etc/fstab.
For mdadm read the man page. It is very long but the examples in the end are very useful.
