I don't have much experience with Linux, but this is a good oportunity to learn
I'm mounting a simple database server and i would like to know if ubuntu server 9.10 (what do you guys recommend for a [begginer] server distribution ?) would work with a hardware raid-1 with this motherboard (there is no linux raid driver listed on vendors download page)
After some tips i discovered that i call raid is actually a fakeraid, also found some articles about running linux on fakeraid using dmraid, and soft raid was suggested and since the performance/capabilities are almost the same, i need to help in another question
Whitch one is easier to setup and will automatically recover and/or boot with 1 disk on some failure
keep in mind that i'm no expert, so if something is very hard to configure i prefer to stand way, at least for now.
Thanks in advance
