Question Quick question about Raid.


Search on forums turns up no helpful results... just to let you guys know before hand so you dont think i didnt do some work before i asked a question =)

Well mh question might not be quite so quick lol...

I'm using SLAMD64 11.0

I have an ASUS A8N-e Mobo, with sci raid drivers, and intel raid drivers, both are windows drivers though. I have set up through my motherboard a RAID 1 of two Maxtor Raptor drives.

When I boot up linux, it see's one of the drives, and its labeled as 34g (their both 34g).. but it isnt seeing the other drive.

How do I get slackware to install onto my raid correctly?

Im wanting to partition it correctly so that I can have linux swap and all that stuff on my raid. if they wernt 10,000rpm drives i wouldnt bother with this, but i really want the speed increase.

From what ive turned up in my searches, i have to install it onto another drive first, then copy it over to a software raid... which is an option, but i dunno how to partition the raid and copy things correctly, such as /home to a seperate partition.

Anybody able to help?
Thanks!

First get youself a install-hosting hdd for the normall install and do trough...
then set up the raid following the documentation found :
# updatedb
# locate Raid
print the interesting READMEs and come back with a story?
May be there is a raid howto on the CD's already?

what if, you made an cd image with mdm and raidtools already on it, and mount the partitions with a software raid in the ram memory during the fdisk partition process?
