After your great advice a few months ago, I sprang for a second 80 GB
drive and did the raid1 thing. I have /boot on its own raid1, then a
second raid1 pair of partitions for the system which has LVM over top of
that, including root and swap. The remainder of the disks are straight
PVs for LVM on which I have /home. When I get into video editing, I'll
create a striped LV as a scratch area.
I've simulated drive failues (pulled the plug on one or the other drive)
and the system has been fine. The install CD's rescue mode assembles
things and lets me run a chroot. I haven't had the misfortune of a real
error that required fixing.
Anyway, root on LVM over raid1 works fine for me.
