Hi All, I am going to be installing a new Windows Server 2008 AD server (DNS, DHCP, some storage).  Was wondering what people suggested for the best drive setup.  the server will most likeley by an HP DL380 G5.  I was thinking about two 72GB drives mirrored (RAID 1) for the O/S.  And then 3 146GB drives (RAID 5) with one hotspare for the data.  That would give me just short of 300GB of space for some storage we need.   What are your thoughts?  Is there a better way to go. Cost is not a great concern (well it is, but only to a certain extent).
