I have been reading about software raid. I configured my first software raid system about a month ago. I have 4 500 Gig drives configured in RAID 5 configuration with a total of 1.5TB.
Currently I configured the complete individual drivers as software raid, then created a /dev/md0 with the drives I then created a /file_storage partition on /dev/md0.
I created my /boot / and swap partitions on a non raid drive in my system. Is the the proper way to configure software raid?
