researching upcoming reinstall of lounge media pc. want to use 2 blank ~250GB disks from windows server. was hoping to stripe them (nothing that i mind loosing on this box). was hoping to just have these disks in the machine (will remove existing disk prior to upgrade so that i can reconnect if it all goes wrong). found a guide to the process of installing ubuntu on software RAID here;
