Here's a couple of links for you to visit:

No question is too elementary to be asked on this forum. The best way to learn is to ask questions.

The only dumb question is the one you don't ask!!

Remember "Google" is your friend.

RAID
SATA

RAID- Is hardware implemented and basically allows differen't configurations of harddrives to improve Preformence or to provide data back up. There are MANY different levels of RAID, so read up.

SATA- Is basically the new interface for Harddrives and Optical drives. The connection is hot swapable and plug and play. So Instead of using an 80 conductor, 40 pin ribbon cable, SATA uses a Serial connection thats alot smaller and faster.

Edit: I hate when people post at around the same time. ;(

that explains the various RAID levels.
note: many people consider that RAID 0 isn't truly RAID.

i agree though, RAID 0 is not truly RAID. like the general said it has no redundancy so can not be considered RAID but who cares, minor details
