i suggest RAID10.  we have a promise 16x2TB fibre raid array, and we've 
got two sets of six drives in two RAID10 arrays.  RAID10 arrays 
experience much faster rebuild rates than RAID5.

RAID10 offers much faster rebuild times, a nice combination of read v. 
write performance, but wastes a lot of space...

at the end of the day, it's your choice.
