RAID? - Debian

Hi My computer overheated a few weeks ago and I ended up with some fs corruption. My mom didn't trust the HD, so she bought me a new one-- so now I have 2 HDs, a 40 GB (the old one) and a 60 GB (the new one). The 60 is hda, and the 40 is hdb. So anyway, I was wondering if I could set up some sort of small, 2-disk RAID array. Would that be a good idea? Or should I just use the old HD to back up the new one?

    Default RAID?

    Hi
    My computer overheated a few weeks ago and I ended up with some fs
    corruption. My mom didn't trust the HD, so she bought me a new one-- so now
    I have 2 HDs, a 40 GB (the old one) and a 60 GB (the new one). The 60 is
    hda, and the 40 is hdb. So anyway, I was wondering if I could set up some
    sort of small, 2-disk RAID array. Would that be a good idea? Or should I
    just use the old HD to back up the new one? My computer is running as the
    server for my domain-- it's a web server, mail server, and the samba server
    for my LAN. If I do set up RAID, what type do you think I should use?

    TIA.

    Put the two disks on the master and set up raid1.

    Take a look at The Software-RAID HOWTO: [1]. It briefly describes the
    various RAID levels.

    From the way the Vikki writes, I would say is a very young person, probably about 12-14. At that age is perfectly right to have a gift from your parent, w/o being afraid of being teased for that reason.
    Peace to all.

    Not quite that young, from what I remember from the "survival skills for
    teenage geeks" thread a while back. Also I've met very few 12- to
    14-year-olds that literate. :)

    I'd recommend not doing anything with the 40GB drive except running
    badblocks -n on it for a few days, just to make sure it's OK. If it's
    in any way dubious, using it for RAID is somewhat pointless, and using
    it for backup purposes is a snare and a delusion.

    Well, I'm 17, but I was writing at 05:00, so I think that's a pretty valid
    excuse. ;) *shrug*
