Thank you, Vu...

I was planning to use my four-plex of 250 GB disks as a RAID-10 (mirrored and striped, or is it the other way around?) array. I was also under the impression that the MoBo was supporting True RAID (silly me...now I know).

In any event, I dug around and found a "recipe" at http://linux-raid.osdl.org/index.php/SATA_RAID_Boot_Recipe for setting up a mirror for the boot drive. In also was set up under Mandriva (although I may move to Fedora at some point), so it seems directly applicable.

If you have a moment and can share any additional "gotcha"s or advice, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise, thanks for your help and your response.

I am wondering if there are any known issues in running Xen and Xen clients (Linux and/or Windoze) on a server configured with either Linux software RAID, or Fake RAID (which is the same thing).

I have some Xen servers running RH5 Xen using mdadm raid 10 on Dom0 with several RH5 domU and feel happy with it.
