Hi to everyone,


We’ve just purchased 5 x used poweredge 1850

Each has 

2 x 3.4Ghx Xeon


2 x 73G SCSI 15k drives


2 will be running Debian and MySQL 5.0 (80% reads)

3 will be running Debian and Apache 1.3/modperl


We would appreciate any input into 


32 / 64 bit OS choice?




RAID Disc controller? They have not shipped with a raid controller so can we
go with an onboard solution if there is any or can a PERC card solution be
recommended for optimal speed.




RAID configuration? Toying between RAID0 or RAID1.


Thanks All.
