I want to buy an IDE raid card for my PC
I'm going to buy two 200gig IDE drives to go along with it.
**NOTE***The raid configuration is going to be used strictly for storage. The system drive is connected directly to the motherboard.
Some questions regarding my proposed RAID:

1. Do the drives need to be the same size?
2. what kind of raid is the best to run for redundancy?
3. What is the minimum amount of drives I need for RAID?
4. Can anyone recommend certain products/part numbers of controllers and drives that work together?
