raid 5 setup 3x10gig harddrives

i have 3 10 gig harddrives that i set up in a raid 5 striping with parity setup.

i only make 3 partitions on a normal setup with 1 drive which is boot, root, and swap.

since you cant raid 5 a boot partition i mirrored 2 drives at 100 meg each.

than i made a raid 5 setup with the root partition
and did the same with the swap partition.

I think I did good but does anyone have any better ideas.

I basically want the computer to run perfectly if any one of the drives fail, and be able to rebuild it.

this is the best setup i can think of but is there a better set-up

any comments will be appreciated.
