Help with raid/ set up

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey peeps, currently i have 2 320gb seagate drives in raid0 and i'm booting off of that, but i'm kinda iffy on this whole raid thing, i'm using my mobo's gigabyte chip for raid, the intel SB chip wasn't working for me. I looked my mobo up, and its fakeraid, and im not sure if i'm getting any real performance increases out of this.

Would it be better to buy a 10k raptor or something to boot from, and then have my c:/ drive be the 2 disks i currently have in raid?

i'm just wondering this because i want to dual boot linux, and its just a pain to dual boot with xp and have to deal with raid.
Meh system

well if you want to delve into linux with fakeRAID, then chances are, you'll need to go with either RedHat, or Fedora, as they work with fakeRAIDs out of the box. (dmraid) But if you really want to use Ubuntu, then i suggest trying Wubi It's not native linux per say, rather, the partitions are virtual (viles on your NTFS drive) but you still use your native networking, video sound, etc.
