3 Simple Questions:

1.  Norton Ghost 10.0 doesn't support raid 1 - is there any use AT ALL to having norton on my system.  (I thought about backing it up to another drive just so i could pull files off if I had a crash.)  Would this work?

2.  How do I know (using raid 1) if a hard drive has gone bad?  From what I've heard it's all about redundancy, and the pc will 'act' as normal if a drive fails.  So how will i know?

3.  Assuming I do know a drive has failed what do I do to install the other (new) drive to go on my way?  I mean i've read you just take out the bad, and install the new drive.  is this really the case?  Is it possible that you can just reformat the old (bad) hard drive in with windows setup disk and hopefully make it a good disk again?  Or if you buy a new disk just stick it in and everything is hunky dorey?  Does it need to be the same brand?  Same size? same what?
