If it's hardware raid, yes. If it's software raid, maybe. You must know that hardware works in linux since you're asking about partition size, so I'll ignore the obvious.

Sure, if the raid card(s) are supported by the kernel. The filesystem is the limitation of what you are talking about, and it can scale up to 4T. Use Ext3, ReiserFS, or XFS for filesystem type. Ext3 has recovery, ReiserFS doesn't-but accesses small files faster, and XFS doesn't but accesses large files faster. Ext3 is in the middle for access time. But, you will need to install one of those journaling filesystems, less your fsck time will kill you.
