Question Ubuntu 10.10 optimized install

Hi, I have recently acquired a server with dual Xeon 3.2, 4GB ram, and 8 x 72GB 15K drives. I plan to install ISPConfig 3 on it.

My array controller has 2 channels. 2 drives on one, and 6 on the other. The websites I host are very DB intensive, so I was wanting to use the channel with the 2 drives setup as RAID 1 to hold the data files, and use the other channel with the remaining drives in RAID 5 config to hold everything else.

I am hoping that someone can offer some basic guidance on this.

First, is this a good idea or should I do something different?
Second, I assume I will need to manually create partitions during the OS install... what partitions should I create and what mount points should I specify?

I believe that once I have installed MySQL I can modify the config file(s) to point to the appropriate folders, but I'll cross this bridge later (and ask for help at that time )

Many thanks in advance,
