I am re-deploying a Dell Poweredge 2500 with a PERC3/Di RAID controller.  I have 5 SCSI 16.9GB drives.

My RAID hardware plan is to assign a RAID 1 to the first 2 drives for the OS, then use the other 3 drives for data in a
RAID 5 configuration.

I like to keep the OS separate from my data.  Is this the best configuration setting?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
