Hardware RAID -how complicated?
I got a laptop, so I'm turning my old computer into a Samba file server (not sure what distro yet). I've decided to get an additional IDE HDD which I'll RAID (level 1) with the existing one. I'm planning on using this PCI controller card to do so.
My question is, since this is a hardware RAID (unless I'm mistaken), are there any special configurations I need to do to get Linux to work with this, or should it just work transparently when I hook all the hardware up? Is there anything I'll need to do to the Kernel?
