RE: [PLUG] Adding a second HD to a Linux system

Thanks for all the input.  I'm inclined to go with 1 internal drive,
although the idea about doing a simple 3 drive raid sounds interesting.
I have a test machine to play with and I'm inclined to give that a shot.
Fortunately the machine is not intended to do machine.  It's most
critical job is as staging server for our main websites, but even that
role is going to be diminished soon.  It also will soon take over
processing log files, but even that isn't too critical.  So in short
drive failure does not terrify me.  This conversation has made me
concerned about my other in house Linux machine, so I may play with a
raid to build experience before I work on the other machine, since
failure that would be more then a minor headache.
