I would choose hardware RAID instead os software RAID: this reduces CPU
overhead on the server, and avoids performance problems due to excesive
layering of "block devices".

2.4.x isn't "productoin quality" yet on some kinds of hardware, specially
those SMP machines with lots of RAM (requiring BIGMEM). That seems to be
your case, and is a known and (hopefully) soon-to-be-solved problem.
