How to setup RAID in Linux
I know a fair bit about computing in general, but I know absolutely nothing about RAID. And of course, I know even less about RAID in linux.
So if I wanted to create a RAID setup on my system what would I need to do (I have a RAID controller on my motherboard).
I have one 30GB hard-disk. Would I just need to buy 1 more 30GB HDD? Can I use a standard IDE cable? What?s all this about strip mode, mirror mode etc? And of course, how would I set it all up in SuSE Linux 8.2pro?
Any (I mean ANY) help/advice appreciated?

there is a raid for linux howto here, but it already assumes some knowledge of RAID:
A google for "Raid tutorial" returns some things like:
What needs to be done (from my knowledge of RAID, which is limited) depends on if you are using "Software RAID" or "Hardware RAID". the difference between the 2 being that with software raid, a program is responsible for duplicating data etc, with hardware raid, it would be your raid controller.
Thats about all i know on the subject
