Been thinking about building a raid 1 array. Haven't done much searching yet but I have found this. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=408461&highlight=raid

Its mostly about building a software raid 0 array but a lot of it applies to any type of raid array.

It really depends on what files you intend to serve.

If they will be using windows apps, you may want to consider a HW RAID card and setup under Windows with a ubuntu partition.
