I have a Dell Power Edge 800. Over time bothe HD failed. I am not familiar w/ RAID config. There si a RAID controller card in the system w/ 6 connection points. There are currently 4 cobles attached 0,1,2,3. I purchased 4 WD 500Gb SATA drives for the syetem. My plan was to have a 500 Gb drive "C" with a backup 500 GB drive and a 500 Gb drive "D" with a corresponding 500 Gb backup.
1) Does this approach make sense?
2) Do I need to install any jumpers on the drives?
3) What are the steps to get these drives formated the OS installed and the RAID (o,1,5,10?) configured?
