Default Ubuntu 9.10 server install

I was installing ubuntu 9.10 server and ran into a couple of problems. I have a Dell PC/Server with mirrored sata drives and a broadcom 57xx network card.
1. The system did not detect my network card so I restarted install with a 3com network card. The install continued on. I would like to use the integrated broadcom network card, but not sure how to get drivers and to load it and then rebind from te 3 com to the broadcom as I will remove the 3com card if I can get the broadcom to work.
2. During the install I choose the default expert mode and as I have mirrored sata drives I was presented with from which drive to run the install on and I choose the primary and as such can I go back and mirror the drives or will the system do that or did I miss something? I would like to run the system with mirrored drives
Thanks

I suggest you try Ubuntu 10.04 instead. Hopefully it supports your Broadcom network card.

I decided to just go ahead and leave the Com network card in. However, is there a way I can either go back and mirror my drives or tell if the system did that for me since I was in expert mode?

You have RAID1, but with just one device (/dev/sdb1). You must add /dev/sda1 to it. What's the output of
Code:
fdisk -l
?

So your system is booting from /dev/sda? If there's no data on /dev/sdb yet, you should use this guide to set up RAID1: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-set...n-debian-lenny
