I am running Ubuntu server on a smaller server that is to small (MSI Wind Nettop), and have decided to build an i3 server in a standard case that can house more than 2 drives. The case I purchased (Antec 300) has a 2.5 HDD mount that I thought would be perfect for loading the server OS on. I have a couple of 60GB Seagate 5400.2 hard drives that I could make exact duplicates of so if the drive ever fails it is a simple as swapping it out. My question is, will having the server on this slow drive affect performance? It will only house programs and the main OS, everything else will be on four 1TB WD Black caviars. Should I just install on the caviars with a seperate partition and forget the laptop drives? Thanks for the help!
