Why did i put boot on RAID-1 (md0 - sda1+sdb1)? Because so i don't have to sync them manually.

Why did i put swap on RAID-1 (md1 - sda2+sdb2)? Because so system doesn't crash if one swap disks fails.

Why did i put root on LVM (RAID1, md2 - sda3+sdb3)? Because so i have possibility to reorganize it and/or add space later.

fdisk -l, cat /proc/mdstat, vgdisplay and lvdisplay output is located at http://georg.linux.ee/trouble/20041115-debian-sarge-lvm-raid/
