Hi All,
I want to set up RAID level 1 to mirror my / and /home
partitions in my email server.I have installed Redhat
Linux 9 with RAID using two 60GB hard drives referring
to the Redhat Customisation guide.Although i am new to
RAID i believe it is meant for RAID 0 not for RAID
1.This is a df output

[root at RAID root]# df -k
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
 15626648 1214628 13618216 9% /
/dev/hda1 102454 9580 87584 10% /boot
 100791728 32864 95638864 1% /home
none 123612 0 123612 0% /dev/shm
[root at RAID root]#
I use /boot on disk 1 and swap on disk 2.The rest is
assigned for the Logical volume Group "Volume00"

So has anyone used RAID with linux ?Are there any
graphical RAID tools? Please help me since i am
clueless.Your help is much appriciated.
