Default Question on raid 1?

My mobod will support many different types of raid so that is not a problem. My question is about raid and the os. What would be the best way to do it. I don't want any other type of raid so don't go there. Any way should I put the os on a whole seperate drive and raid the the other two drives or should I partition the drive and do it that way? Any advice? Thanks.

Default Re: Question on raid 1?

I would partition the raid drives and put it on the first partition. That's how I am doing it. My first partition will be 40gb and will contain the OS and swapfiles only. Second partion is for college at 20gb, third for misc files 20gb, last partition 120gb for gaming. This is on a raid 1 320gb setup
