i bought a
- PCI ATA 133 IDE card (with Raid support).
- 2 harddisks (Seagate 80gb)
(i) There are 2 IDE connectors: a Blue IDE, and a Red IDE. How should i connect them to 2 harddisks ? Should the Red one connects to the 1st harddisk, and the Blue one connects to the 2nd mirror harddisk ? Or Should i just use the Red one connecting to 2 harddisks, and leave the Blue one untouched ?
(ii) How to configure the jumpers of the 2 harddisks ? Should the 1st harddisk be master, and the 2nd harddisk to be slave ?
(iii) How to test and know my Raid is working ?
(iv) What other un-foreseen problems may crop up when i install my Raid card ?
