raid questions

Post by Ianh » Sun Jan 07, 2007 7:06 am

I have gone native with 2 x 400G drives (thanks to Cheeseyboofs' excellent tutorial).

Now I want to try and run the drives as a raid 1 (disk mirror) NAS.

From searching this forum I have come to the conclusion that downloadable Gentoox does not include raid support - is that right ?

Is it possible to add raid support ?

How simple is that given I have never complied a linux kernel ?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you
