    I find using software RAID to be too scary.
    I think Promise IDE RAID cards are $150.

    In my view, that is a small price to pay to
    be able to not deal with a Software RAID.
    I skimmed over that FAQ... it is ugly!

    I don't really get what every has against Software RAID. I've used it, and I had no problems at all with it. If you have a hotplug IDE system or a similar SCSI system, which makes the system not hang from hardware failure if a disk fails, you can just leave Software RAID running while changing disks, just as with hardware RAID. The kernel schedules an extra thread to move data to the new disk when it's inserted.
