I am building a machine and considering 2 options for my hard drive setups:
1) 2 74gb wd raptors in RAID 0 and 1 750gb wd storage drive, for total of 900gb.
2) 4 500gb wd drives in RAID 10, for total of 1tb.
I do a lot of gaming so I will be running WinXP for now and a lot of development so i will need a small Slackware partition.
Now my question is, for both setups above, how would you suggest I partition the drives granted the linux partition need not be larger than 50gb.
unless you really have specific need for raid 0 (meaning media editing, transferring large files, disk thrashing, or other similar disk intensive tasks), its probably better to go without it for the otherwise small benefit, plus youll most likely have less of a headache too incase something goes wrong somewhere down the line
