Re: Software RAID question


  Thanks for the info. But my issue is that I do not have a RAID Controller. I was looking at
using the raid features built into the kernes. I have been playing with 2.4.18 and raidtools2.

hi ya

booting into raid1 or raid0 for / should be fine...

for scsi disks... you'd need to make sure the kernel
supports your controller... ( use initrd )
am assuming ( md0 ) / contains /boot and everything
needed for single user mode

if it was ide ...
/dev/md0 == /dev/hda1 /dev/hdd1
/dev/md1 == /dev/hdc1 /dev/hdb1

you should use md0 as mirror so you can
boot off hda or hdd...

and use md0 stripped to md1

for scsi... life's simpler...

Is it possible with the newer kernels to actually boot to a software 
raid?? I have a machine with 4 SCSI drives and I want to be able to RAID
1 the drives in pairs. One pair for the / and the second pair for /var
only. But everything I have read to date says you cannot do this.
