I am a bit new to hardware configuration in general, much less with linux, so please give me a little slack :)
I have the following setup: 1 320GB Drive that contains the OS (centOS) and 2 250GB drives that have a hardware RAID1 configuration (accomplished via my ASUS motherboard raid utility, they are mirrored as one device)
The problem is that everywhere I am reading online, the centOS is supposed to see the 2 disks that have RAID1 as a single device. However, when I run fdisk -l I am shown the three disks individually, the 320GB drive (/dev/sdc) and the individual 250GB drives (/dev/sda) and (/dev/sdb)
I was under the impression that I was supposed to see two, the /dev/sda (OS drive) and some kind of 'raid' device (/dev/sdb) that I can select for partitioning and then mounting.
What am I doing wrong? Because I will need to repeat this process when I install another 2 drives for RAID1 for another purpose - I need to get this down right.
