Hi there,

I plan on setting up Gentoo on my PC with two hard disks. Now I wonder what partitions to set up in order to use the two disks best.

This is my system:

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2500+
RAM: 512 MB (2x256 MB PC3200)
Mainboard: MSI K7N2 Delta-L (nVidia nForce2 SPP chipset)
HDD 1: Samsung SP2514N (250 GB, 8 MB Cache)
HDD 2: Western Digital WD1600BB (160 GB, 2 MB Cache)

What I use the PC mainly for is: (in the order of significance) playing MP3s, internet, office applications, graphics- and sound editing.

What do you think about the partitions, esp. concerning

- software-RAID0
- putting /usr and /usr/lib on different disks
- setting up a swap partition on each disk, with same priority ?
