Well, yes. Raid 5 is a good general choice for a general setup and
software raid works just fine. Just don't know if your system is to
be 'general' or will have more specialized needs, where balance would
be more towards RW access (Raid 0) redundancy (LVM over raid 1) etc.
Is it a good idea to install debian sarge onto soaftware raid 5?
Keep in mind tho that linux cannot boot directly from raid 5, you'll
need a separate /boot, I've got mine on a small raid 1 partitions on
the 4 disks that comprise my raid 5 set. You might also use LVM on
you raid patitions, so you can conveniently add more diskspace later.
