Exclamation Slackware Dual Boot Question


Good Evening,

I have 4 hard drives in my system. Two for "windows" and two for Slackware. Windows is in a hardware raid 0 and I would like to put Slackware also in a raid 0. Is it possible or is there anything special I must do or?

Thank You

When you say that Windows is in a hardware raid0 (striping) do you mean that you have a real hardware controller or it is a fakeraid?

slackware can be installed in raid0 easily, either using a real hardware controller or like I do, using the kernel raid module (md devices).

depending if you have real hardware or not, this will impact the answer you will get
