Hello,
i'm going to install SBS2008 on HP ML310G5p only issue what i have is that this server support only 4 HDD. Originally i wanted to install 6 HDD each pair as miror, anyway because the company bought the server without consultation i'm thinking about use one miror for OS end second one for exchange+ file server. The company has only 15 users so far and will be up to 30 users in the future so it souldn't be the issue at all. or am i worng?

I typically use RAID 1's with a hotspare, I deal with an expert who preaches the importance of having hotspares. I realize you want to make use of all drives - if it were myself and if the drives were large enough I'd go with the RAID 1 with hotspare leaving you with a spare drive when 1 of your drives fails down the road. Ensure the OS partition is fairly large, I've been typically going with those partitions at 60GB (that's if your partitioning).

Why not go for a RAID 5 across 3 drives, and have one as the hot spare.  That way you have built in redundancy and max usage of disk space. 30 users is not going to tax any system
