What do you think? *do not* do this, if any of your two disks fails, the data is gone. Better use raid10 instead, though for that you will need 3 disks at least. Also putting / and /opt on an SSD will speed up things massivly. (So just keep /home on real harddisks.) A 120gb SSD is about 100€ and (if possible) IME is the best investment for an old machine. > b) I can probably get a low end xeon (single socket).
