u need server class, professional wont cut it.

u can use professional to create a ,irroed volumes on a remote computer but that has to be running server class.

um if u dont want server then u could go with a hardware raid.  raid-5 is faster in read operations but slower in write operations.

there maybe 3rd party software that may allow u to do it
but i dont know how well they work and their performance...

Okay, that's the answer I kinda' expected.  Who do I give the points to?  Any other suggestions for fault tolerance if Raid isn't an option.

You wouldn't want to use a software RAID. It is extremely slow even if you have 7200rpm drives. Blah!
