Subject: mirroring a disk

| I've got a Poweredge 500SC.  We ordered it with two identical disks for
mirroring.  I did not see anything during the configuration which allowed me
to specify I wanted the disks mirrored so now I've got all my mounted
partions on hda and a single partition on hdb.  I would like to know the
best way to get from where I am to a system where what I have on hda is
mirrored on hdb.  I found RAID instructions on
|  http://www.thelinuxgurus.org/raid.shtml
| but they look like they're for setting up two disks from scratch (i.e
without preserving the contents of either which is what I want to do.)
| Can anyone point me to documentation on creating a mirror for a disk?
