Re: amd64 dualcore nad raid1
Apologies, I use a slightly different board, the one on the Tyan
Transport Server Chassis GT24. Its the same chipset though, so you can
pretty safely assume Sarge will have the same support for it.

I use that exact board with the same setup. The RAID1 on it is not true
RAID, so I use the Linux Software RAID to set up two RAID1 arrays of 2
drives each (i need two separate physical arrays for my purposes).
It works well, and performance is good. Debian Sarge with the 2.6 kernel
detects all hardware nicely. I recommend that setup.

Do you think that mainboard Tyan Thunder S2877ANDF x 2 Dual Opteron
under debian testing/unstable provides adequate raid 1 support without
going to expensive 3ware products? I plan to have 2GB ram, but that is
not enough for the calculations and frequent access to disk occurs.
Remember that i am based in italy where the market is under rigid
control by whom you can easily imagine so that it is not easy to get
what one wants (for example main boards). i am happy when i meet a
handler who follows my linux requests, most do not.
thanks for answering
