I am looking for input as to the best method for installing SQL on a new server.  Below is the drive / RAID configuration of my server.
The server is running Windows Server 2008 Standard 64 bit.
2-146 GB SCSI drives,RAID 1, partitioned into 40 GB / 100 GB.  The Op Sys is installed on the 40 GB partition.
4-300 GB SCSI drives RAID 10, single patition totaling 600 GB.
Single processor
8 GB RAM
My question is where should I install the SQL program files, temp files,  log files, database, etc.
Thanks
