hi it would be appreciated if i could get 'yes or no' answers to my specific questions below before i start!!

i wish to configure 'raid 0 & 1' as per these instructions, but have 3 questions below, before i start:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323432

qns1.  after initially configuring a network or domain for the 1st time, should i then as best practice, run 'raid' 1st ?

qns2. my network has not been created for a domain yet, but i will do, but i was not sure if it makes a difference if i run 'raid o & 1' before or after ?

- master server
- ris/file server
- isa server

currently i have not (isci hdd's, just normal ide type) - this is only for a small network anyway, but wanted to configure 'raid' for the 1st time to learn its practical use!

qns3. once 'raid 0 & 1' is up & running, am i able to continue using the servers for normal daily use ?

qns4.  what if i switch of the 3 servers from time to time over night and switch back on, will this mean i have to re-run 'raid' or does it start automatically ?
