Re: Installing on software RAID5?

RAID1 for swap? Iirc swap will do striping if you use multiple
partitions (on different disks?) with the same priority. So for swap you
don't even need to setup RAID0. You might want to use RAID0 for /tmp and
/var/tmp however.

Not sure if the installer has improved in this respect since RHL 7.2,
but you could not set chunk size then. If not you might want to setup
your RAID partitions before doing the actual installation.
