Question How many RAIDs should i use!?

Hi guys...

I have a system that i am setting up that will be a file server and a Internet gateway.


P 400MHz
128 MB Ram (will be 512)
Two 3 GB HDD in RAID 1
Redhat 9

The first time i set up the RAID i made one RAID set up that mirrored everything from /. there was no separate boot or swap partitions.

The second time i set up 3 different RAIDs one for /, boot, and swap.

All of the RAIDs are RAID -1

The first setup is the easiest for me to maintain as there is only one partition. But the second way i guess is how i should do it. The final system will have 512 MB Ram when finished so do i need to worry about a swap partition and just stick with a swap file, i have no idea about the boot.

What do you guys think? What set up shall i use? (i would like to use the first one )

Im using lilo as the boot loader as GRUB has problems with RAID 1 - is there any fixes jet?

Thanks Tim

You where all a once!
