i have just installed with the debian installer making 2 x raid1 and
then glueing them together with LVM
256 MB /boot raid 1 (on all 4 disks)
10 GB /root raid1 + lvm
1 GB /swap raid1 + lvm
500 GB unused raid1 + lvm

(i wasn't very sure what to do about the swap but i think this means
slower but securer in a case of crashing)

till so far the performance feels pretty snappy but i still have to do
some benchmarking and remove a few random disks to see what happens.

anybody ever reliably used a set up like this in production?
