I have a MSI P35 Neo2-FIR Motherboard with ICH9R raid chipset. It's not a true hardware RAID solution, it requires software addon to work properly. There are drivers for Windows and dmraid/fakeraid for Linux.
I have 3 identical HDDs (ST3250410AS 250GB) for usage. I need 1 partition with data accessible from Windows and Linux (this one MUST be on RAID) and at least two for systems.
What disc/raid layout should I use? Protection of data (/home and "Document and Settings") is the most important
