Well, two questions. OK, maybe three.
Is there an advantage to running software raid vs hardware raid?
Is it possible to configure a PERC 5/i (in a PE2950) to not act as a
Last question (for now anyway), anyone have any luck with the Etch
installer (amd64) on a 2950?
This may be dumb, but I was looking at using software raid (mdadm) with
lvm2 to run multiple xen guests. It seems that a good configuration
would be to have a raid1 /boot and a raid5 with lvm for the rest of the
filesystems. This is all new to me as I used hardware raid on my
previous PEs, no lvm. However, I like the flexibility lvm offers,
especially with xen guests.
