Best RAID Setup?

I have a Iwill KK266-R motherboard and want to setup a new RAID array. What is the best disc Configuration for a RAID 0+1? How should I set the discs?
Master0 - Master1 is strip
Slave0 - Slave1 is mirror
Or another setup?

What is the best strip size when that files are from various sizes but I want the best output for very big one?

Finally what are the best HD for RAID IDE? My target will be 40 Gb drivers.

  1. the best performance would be raid 0 and the safest would be raid 1. or you could go for the ubarrrrrr 0+1

    well are you going to be using ntfs or fat32?

  2. He really ought to use ntfs cause it's a lot easier to recover data if shiznit happens.

    My frog asked me for a straw...dunno what happened his ass all over the place :eek:

  4. I put in my mind to try a 0+1. I have 4 WD400BB, I wanted WD600BB but they are super hard to find, they seems to be super popular over here (Japan).

    I have only Win98 for the moment, but I will propably migrate soon to 2000 Pro. I have delay much the transition because the PC is also used a lot for gaming and I don't want to have X boots. XP isn't maching my needs, unless the SP1 fixed all the problems, but knowing MS it will take at least until SP2.
  5. I investigated this. The marginally better setup was with the strip set in the master positions and the mirror set in the slave positions. This was with a Highpoint 370 controller, might be different with the AMI controller.

    Stripe size should be 64K. But Maxtor 370DX drives.
