Question How to set up a *SOFTWARE* RAID with Mandrake 9.2 ??


Hi,

Does anybody know how to do a simple RAID with Mandrake 9.2?

I just want to do a disk mirroring or duplexing to keep a safe backup of all my data in case of a hard disk failure.

I have a 1 Ghz desktop, with 2 10-GB IDE hard disks. Mandrake is installed in one of the disks, the other disk is "empty" (free for tests).

The PC doesn't have any hardware RAID capability.

I've been using Mandrake for one month, just for testing purposes, in order to decide if to replace those high-cost M$ boxes.

Thanks in advance!

Angel.
