Follow-up: Worst night ever...
I just got the cable and adapters I need to bring life back into
Geocentric.(1) 6x '80 to 68pin' SCSI adapters and a arms length SCSI 68pin
round cable to tie them all together. I must say, I pray too little. I
mount the 6 drives into the IBM Z-Pro chassis. Route the cables, attach the
adapters, power; now give it a shot! BAAM!!
Kidding, everything works well. My new IBM Z-Pro is now equip with the
Proc: 1Ghz PIII Xeon
SCSI: Adaptec AIC-7899
Disk: 6x 36MB Ultra SCSI disks
CDRW: LiteOn 48x24x48
TAPE: Dell PowerVault 110T
Now I am installing Debian Woody. A fresh install. I cannot find how
during the installation to setup software RAID. Anyone know?
I also need some advise how to partition the drives. I figure most of it
will be one large partition (~80-100GB RAID 5), and a few other partitions
for things like swap, root, boot, homes, etc. I am of the school that has
had only a few partitions in the past. One for boot, one for root and one
for swap. I understand that this is not the best way to configure ones
system. Any advise? Please be detailed.
Thanks so much to all for making playing with linux such a great experience!
