Talk:RAID0, Software, How to setup
Hope you don't mind the addition of the glaring warning about RAID0: I trust that you're a grownup and know what you're doing, but I want to make sure any real fledglings get a slap in the face before they blindly start going and setting up massively fault-intolerant arrays. =) Btw, I don't think the bsdlabel command is actually necessary - it isn't when building an array with graid3, at any rate. I wouldn't think that gstripe would likely be any different. --Jimbo 22:50, 8 November 2007 (EST)
I don't mind at all, it's a valid point for those new to using RAID (dare I use the term "n00bs"?). I highlighted the risk in the RAID0 overview article but neglected to add it here too.
I am still in half-minds as to whether to commit to this RAID0 or simply go with half the storage and utilise RAID1. The reason I went for RAID0 is because the storage is for FLACs from CDs and VOBs from DVDs (all my own copies, before the MAFIAA swoop in!). Any failure would simply result in loss of my effort in ripping them.
If nothing else, it's a good reference to implementing RAID0 in a working example form ;-)
The bsdlabel was from the FreeBSD manual but with the -wB parameter, something to do with copying the bootloader, so I suspected it was implying the creation of a bootable system drive. I just changed it to creating a simple label.
