To answer your questions in order.

1) Yes.
2) Yes, but NTFS is read-only in Linux, writing is very very dangerous.
3) See above.

Regards

because NTFS is read-only in Linux, writing is very very dangerous, i decied to use fat32.
Now both 60 GB hard dirves are connected with Adaptec raid 1200A , and hardware mirror has eshtablished (stiil have to check that working or not) .
Drives are formated with Fat32 filesystem , ID type c in fdisk.
Auto mount with this following entry in /etc/fstab
/dev/hde1 /mnt/Data-Drive vfat user,umask=000 0 0

Thansk and Regard
