Hi all, this is my first post on the LQ forums
One of the hard drives in my RAID 0 array just died a few days ago (luckily I had a batch file that backed up some files for me automatically) and the new one is on the way. Taking advantage of the opportunity, I've decided to do a dual boot with Windows and Linux. Does anybody have any ideas on good Linux systems for newbies (I have Red Hat 9 and Mandrake 9.2). I checked out the HighPoint site, and they don't list Mandrake as a supported distro for their RAID drivers. However, a friend recommended I use Mandrake over Red Hat. Any ideas on a preferred distro keeping in mind that it will have to work with a RAID array? And is there a best way to setup a dual boot? I'll be using two Maxtor 40GB 7200 RPM HDDs. Thanks in advance.
