Question Raid in RedHat

Hello all!

I have (finally) setup a working Samba server, that all the workstation WILL use to store their data and access the domain.
Now, I want to put some disks into the PC that has the Smaba installed to give free space to all of them. My company can give some money (OK, lots of money if I say so) and I want to give the best solution.

I want to be more secure than fast, so I need to find a RAID solution but the problem is that I know s**t about raid...

I need someone to guide me through this task, like to tell me what adaptor I need and what disk whould I use. I would preffer something from Adaptec and Hitachi, but I need to be sure that my RH9 is ready for them! I also need to know what raid I have to install (1,5 or similar). I heard somewhere that you can have 3 disks so in 1 and 2 all data are stored and into the 3rd, the parity or sth, gives unlimited data loss security. Is that so?

Any help, please! Thank you!
