This is a huge question that is being divided into multiple questions because it is worth more that 500 points

I have purchased a Dell 2600 ... it currently has three 146gig HD and a Raid 5 Controller with hot swappable HD's.

I have actually 5 more drive bays ... 3 right below and two where a tape backup can go as well, but this unit is
setup for 2 HD's already.

I have setup Raid 5 on a similiar maching before but using only 3 HD's ...

My question is can I have the next 3 setup separately so there is actually two separate Raid 5 setups
that they work independently on their own 3 HD's ?

Then what about the other 2 in the backup bay ? Can these also be setup with 2 drives ?

Will this be dependent upon a hardware piece and if so how do I tell if it is possible with what I
have ...

"My question is can I have the next 3 setup separately so there is actually two separate Raid 5 setups that they work independently on their own 3 HD's ?"

Yes, you can create a second Raid array if 1) your Raid controller supports it, or 2) you install a second Raid controller.


"Then what about the other 2 in the backup bay ? Can these also be setup with 2 drives ?"

Of course, you can't create a Raid 5 array with just two HDs, but again, you can do what you want with these, provided your controllers can handle it.  You could also combine all 5 and have a 5 HD Raid 5 array.


"Will this be dependent upon a hardware piece and if so how do I tell if it is possible with what I have ..."

You have to look up the specs for your Raid controller.  If you don't have those, you can find them online or post here and someone should be able to tell you what is possible.
