Hey every one

I am in the process of building a file servrer curently with 4 x 1TB seagate drive (capability to expand to 8 Drives)
I need redundency and i was wondering whether to use RAID 0+1 or RAID 5, at some time i will be xpanding to 8 drives so i need  solution that will allow expansion. I know i can just make another array but not sure if this is the best sollution.
I have 8 port 3aware raid card.
Any sugestions would be greatly appreciated.
