There are many IDE Raid controllers on the market.  I have only dealt with SCSI Raid controllers.

Can I get the same functionallty out of an IDE Raid controller.  Only looking for RAID 1.
Here is the functionalty I am looking for: Either one of the hard drives goes bad, the other will just keep working 100%.  Can reboot etc with no problems until I get the bad drive replaced.  

Your advice will be vital to a server I have and need to make it Raid 1.
thanks.  

ps: I already have the server with two 40 gig hard drives and it is only going to be a Domain Controller so please limit the advice to only regular IDE drives, no SATA, no SCSI  thanks

I can't say I've had a failure to test this - I just expect it - but that's what a RAID controller should do.  There are dozens available - any basic IDE RAID controller should work like that and support RAID 1, 0, and 0+1.  IF you wanted RAID 5, that's different, RAID 5 is done on a per controller level - meaning one disk per controller, 4 controllers (or more) to a card.
