Newbe question: Raid-1 from CD-ROM-based Distro
I'm a compete Linux newbe. No prior exposure. So I downloaded a distro that featured ability to boot from a USB thumb drive, and then tried it on my new system, which features drive C (raid-1) and drive D (also raid-1).
Problem is, it showed four hard disks: Drives C, D, E, and F. Since I didn't want to screw up my hard disks, I bailed immediately.
Question: is there a distro that I can boot from my CD or DVD drive OF from my 4GB USB drive, that will recognize my RAID-1 arrays?
