    Raid Support in Ubuntu?

    I'll be putting a new computer together in the next couple days and was planning on using a Raid 0. My old machine had an ide drive as well that I used various flavors of Linux on but never did put one on my raid 0 that I had in that machine. My new machine I don't plan on using any IDE harddrives at all.

    I have read of some issues with getting raid to work inside of Ubuntu. Is this still the case? Is sata in a non raid setup supported fine? I may end up putting in a larger sata drive in a non raid setup and then have my two smaller sata drives as a raid as well.

    I'll admit to being somewhat lazy to look these answers up, but I figure someone here may have been through it all already. Some of the information on raids has been pretty unhelpful that I have looked at as well.

    I will be using this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128017

    It guess it has 2 different controllers on it but the intel sata connections don't support raid so I would be using a JMicron/Gigabyte raid controller.

    Disclaimer: I don't use RAID

    Last semester (~3 months ago?) we did a RAID lab in a class I was in, and we used Ubuntu. We went through several levels of RAID including simulating drive failing, and everything worked fine.

    So, I haven't done any longer term use, but it seemed fine.

    The disks were SATA.
