hi, all

my server have four slots, i used have 2 IBM SCSI 36.7GB.(IBM Ultrastar 80pin 160 10000RPM)

Recently I ordered another two IBM SCSI disk, it said 36GB...(after i received it, i found "IBM Eserver 80pin 160 10000RPM")

After i start the server into array setup , it shows..2 of 36.4GB, another 2 is 36.7GB.

1)Could this four SCSI disks could be set into RAID-5? Does it requires all Independent  disk to be the same size?

2)If i have 4 disks into RAID-5, what will be the total size? how to allocate to different partitions...like c: xxGB...D:xxGB...
BTW, win 2k server will be installed.

3) it says 'hot-swap'...is that means i could pull the SCSI disk out without turing off the power?
