I have computer junk left over in my closet that nobody wants, including me. Times are tight though, so I'm using it. So, anyway, I have these two seagate sata drives that are identical. They are 320 Gig Drives. I want to run linux (Ubuntu) but the default install routine only uses one drive or the other.
If I do this manually, I can set up primary and logical partitions for /, /boot, swap, /var, /tmp, /usr, /usr/local, /srv, /opt and /home. I already know that when I am through I will have an approx. 250 Gig /home partition. (or a big chunk of unused space if i don't have a home partition on the boot drive). 'cause there's the other 320 Gig drive to think about. If I create a /home partition on the second drive, linux will complain when it boots up.
So, what is the best way to put these two drives to use under linux?
Can I mirror these two drives?
If so, how?
