what do you mean with '4- or 8-way' ?

I have always two disks parallel (one original and one mirror)

Had problems with Software RAID, because the mirror is not

I think, I can use only Hardware RAID.

I have not found a reseller for 3ware in my region...

Why use 30 Gigs if a 1 Gig does it...

It is only one of my administration Servers and the installation
is around 95 MByte... ;-))
