In a 4 drive configuration-

Does Server 2003 support putting the boot partition in a RAID 1
configuration on 2 drives and then setting up the remaining volumes as RAID
5, using the remaining space on all 4 drives?

HI Mz,
Ofcourse you can do that but you wont be able to use all the space on your
third and fourth disks for the raid 5 volume as raid 5 would take same amount
of space on all the disks.
