I am getting ready to set up a simple file server. I have linux many times but never with Raid in mind. I found a little info out there on doing this but I still have a question.
If I plan to have two 500 GB hard drives for backing up several computers in the a network (Raid). Do I need to have a separate hard drive for my OS and home partitions? Or, can I just partition one of the large drive for those areas?
If it matters... I am setting up a small server for Shared files and important backups for 5 XP computers.
