I'm putting together a new server that will use RAIDframe for RAID-1 on
two drives. I plan to run FreeBSD in an fdisk partition using the VT
support in Xen 3. The question is what do I do about RAID and that
Once choice is to do nothing, and use the corresponding space on the
second drive for something else. A second is to use FreeBSD's geom
mirror on that part of both drives. I have no idea if that will work.
A third choice -- is there a third choice?
