I didn't get any replies in one of the other forums, so I'm trying here.
I have decided to migrate from M$ Windows to Ubuntu. I currently have a RAID5 set up using the Intel ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID controller on my motherboard. From the reading I've been doing, I understand that this is a fakeRAID.
What I would like to know is, what is the difference between LVM, dmraid, and mdadm? And are any of these going to help me mount my RAID5 in Ubuntu?
If not, I have two new HDDs and I was going to copy all the data onto one of them and then build a RAID1 in Ubuntu (without wiping all the data, of course). Which tool should I use to do that?
