I have an existing CentOS 4.3 install on an IDE harddrive. I would like to add a second IDE harddrive of the same size to the machine and do software RAID 1. I have seen many complicated ways to do this. What is the best and easiest way to do this?

1.    Install RAID tools.
2.    Configure /etc/raidtab
3.    mkraid

Sit back and wait!


Para 5.6 for your desired configuration (inc example raidtab)
