RAID Configuration

Looking for suggestions on a raid configuration for a server with eight 72 gb sas hard drives and 2 gig's of ram and 3.2 processor.

I am going to use it as an application server, maybe ftp server....

ASKER

So I don't want RAID 0 becuase I need fault tolerance.  The article only talks about RAID 0.
What I thought of doing is:

Array A RAID 0+1
Array B RAID 0+1

and the rest RAID 5
the article talks about all raid levels up to 50! click on the links up the top

ok
Great article.  Looks like RAID 5 of course... Initial instinct but thought I remembered someone saying to mix it up.
