I recently set up a new database server and discovered that once you
add filesystem formats, LVM and RAID into the mix, there's a lot of
possible combinations to be considered. Currently my new database server
has ReiserFS sitting on two LVM pools with the database sitting on
the pool of hardware RAID-5.

I am also considering mirroring my media server by sticking a 200 Gb
disk in a spare Ultra5 and using rsync to replicate any errors that
develop in the original data.

Those cheap SATA RAID1/0 controllers seem to be a waste of effort.
