    Install Ubuntu With Software RAID 10 The Ubuntu Live CD installer doesn't support software RAID, and the server and alternate CDs only allow you to do RAID levels 0, 1, and 5. Raid 10 is the fastest RAID level that also has good redundancy too. So I was disappointed that Ubuntu didn't have it as a option for my new file server. I didn't want shell out lots of money for a RAID controller, especially since benchmarks show little performance benefit using a Hardware controller configured for RAID 10 in a file server.

    Minimal Ubuntu 8.04 Server Install I find myself removing packages that I don't need, especially if the packages belong to processes that are using processor resources. There is a way to start from the ground up, you can have a minimal system and just add what you need. This has the added benefit of extra security, your system doesn't have services running that you don't use. You won't use a Ubuntu Server CD, but the Desktop Live CD.
