I read in digest form so it's hard for me to quote the post, but
someone out there is having problems remembering how to set up RAID on
an initial install of WBEL and was attempting to do it using the
manual partition method.
I recommend instead using Disk Druid.
There are a number of resources on the net which will tell you how to
use Disk Druid to partition disks using RAID.
For RAID1, you want to declare partitions on two disks which are of
the same size and of type RAID, then create a RAID device which uses
the two of them and is mounted as an ext3 filesystem.
I would echo the previous poster who recommended the excellent HOWTO
and who also recommended LVM. I use LVM both with and without RAID
and find it a very workable system especially if disk use fluctuates.
Basically to use LVM with RAID, instead of having the RAID device
mounted as an ext3 filesystem, you have the RAID device used as a
physical volume for LVM, and you can then declare logical volumes for
use as ext3 filesystems within that volume.
