    Hello,<BR> I have a ABIT BE-6 motherboard with the ultra 66 dma controller on it and a p3 700. I want to get an ABIT hotrod ata 100 pci controller card and run 2 IBM 45GB ultra ata 100 hardrives in a raid format. Can anyone tell me if this would be a good setup and which raid should I run. I was thinking 0+1, but any help would be great. Thanks

    A RAID 0+1 will take 4 drives, not just two; RAID level 0 needs two drives in itself, throw in two more drives for mirroring the other two, and you get 4 drives total. A RAID 0 with two IBM 45G GXP's will definitely kick @ss!! If you're really into data integrity, get a CD-RW and do frequent back-ups.<P>Be wary of some Windows installation woes with Abit RAID's, though. It's well documented so no real problems there!<P>BM
