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?
