[Samba] AutoCad and ArcView

1. Are the files constantly accessed by the applications ( like an excel
file opened on a share ) ?

2. What RAID settings does your controller support other than 5? 
   I know IBM servers use 5E, 5EE and 1E which are a little more
interesting than plain 5
   A raid 10 could be interesting too for file serving where writes are
as common as reads.
