I'm about to set up a database server, It has five 78 GB SCSI 3 10,000 RPM's Hard disks and a RAID controller.  My first aproach is to set 2 HD's as Raid 1 on one channel and 3 Hd's as Raid 5 on other channel.
For the DB information I'll create a partition on the Raid 5, probably all the avaible space, leaving the Raid 1 to  the OS and aplications.

OS White Box or Red Hat enterprise 3.0
Aplicattions to be used;
SAMBA
APACHE, for intranet
MySQL
Aplications that may be used
PHP

Any suggestions ara wellcome

That should be fine. You could, if you wanted to, make one four drive RAID 5 array and reserve one drive as a hot spare. The RAID 5 volume could then be partitioned in to areas for the OS and DB storage. Having a hot spare is a "good thing" and it would mean that you'd have to loose three drives before the system would fail
