Just a quick question as I am thinking of doing this.... I take it that the right way of doing the raid is through linux as you have done create duplicate partitions on both drives and then raid them together using software. Its just I thought that if your moptherboard has onboard raid cant you install everything to the first harddrive and then let the onboard raid mirror to the other hard drive or does it not work like that.... Any advice you can give would be helpful.

In your situation it sounds like you have to raid partitions working... swap and / ... when you repaired the raid by syncing did you do both raids swap and / or just one of them.... justing thinking out load that if you did not do both then perhaps that caused your problem..... dont know much about this yet I am only trying it today.....

If you have any pointers please share....

Thanks
