hello all. got a quick question. is a set up like this available.

1x hdd will be my operating OS. 60 gb
2x hdd will be set up for raid 80gb 8 mb "cache" :)

so basically running 3 hdd on an a7v333.
It should be easy to set up. If you have a non-RAID board, just get an IDE RAID controller card, if the board has RAID then simply install the HDDs following install. Install the OS on the primary drive. Add the RAID card and HDDs. Set up the array in the RAID controller's BIOS. Partition and format the array and you're in business.

Make sure to back up any critical data, since bad things can happen to those who don't.
