Grub, RAID and software mirror C:
I'm considering installing Kubuntu to the last 40GB of an 80GB IDE drive in my system. Please help with the following:
1. The first partition of this drive (hdc) contains a software mirror of my Windows XP drive C: on hda. On booting, Windows offers me a choice of booting either, presumably from bootini. Will this be effectively incorporated into GRUB?
2. Can Grub cope with booting Ubuntu from beyond 30GB into a disk?
3. I have a FAT32 partition on a hardware RAID 0 array which is dedicated to a Windows Swap/Page file. Is it possible to get Linux to use the same partition for its Swap, presumably utilising FAT32 format?
Re: Grub, RAID and software mirror C:
Yes, if your Bios can. If not (as is the case with older Bioses), you can always create a separate /boot at the front of the disk.
