I am planning a new comp and i came across this info about a soltek board:
IDE: 2x ATA 133 up to 4 Devices, 1x ATA 133 up to 2 Devices by Promise 20579 with RAID 0/1/0+1
SATA: 2x Serial ATA with RAID 0/1, 2x Serial ATA by Promise 20579 with RAID 0/1/0+1
Does that mean that you can have an ide raid array(i.e. wouldn't have to buy satas?)
I want to have two drives as mirrors of each other, but i don't want to have to buy new drives(i have an eide ata100 160 gig and an ultra ata100 80 gig)
I wondered if i could partition the 160 into two equal sections and have the second drive mirror the first have of the 160. is it possible to have an array consisting of two partitions? maybe a silly question.
