Its just a cross between RAID 0 And 1, most motherboards support it, I believe.
The major difference is more that RAID 5 includes parity checking (that is what the extra drive is for). So out of three drives, the third is the parity check drive. Out of four RAID drives, the fourth is the parity drive, and so on.

Actually in RAID 5 the parity data is distributed across all the drives in the array. RAID 3 and 4 have dedicated parity.

RAID 10 is a cross between 1 and 0, but you need 4 drives.
