    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?

    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.
