Fresh install of Linux - Want to keep existing RAID array
I currently have an Amahi system with Fedora 10, but need to do a fresh install of Fedora 12. My computer has a system disk, plus two drives configured in a RAID-1 setup. The RAID-1 drive contains only user documents like photos, so I do not want to lose this. When I do the fresh install, I'm planning on having both RAID drives pulled. Then, once linux is installed, plugging them back in and re-creating the RAID. My first question is: Does that sound like a good way to do things?
My second question: How do I recreate the RAID once Fedora 12 is set up? I do not want to run any risk of losing data since these drives contain my only copies of the data. Thanks!
