I previously posted that I wanted to setup a server with RAID. I did that but settled on a non-server desktop install. The hardware's a bit old and was having trouble getting things to cooperate. I have 1 TB disks that I partitioned into 2 slices, 1 for the OS (no Raid) and 1 on all 3 for Raid 5. My goal is to be able to reinstall the OS and reclaim the RAID rather than recreate it and have to do a restore. I've been able to do this using the desktop distro. I want to overwrite the OS with Ubuntu Server, but I don't think I can reclaim the RAID. At the point where you setup the disks it seems to me that you can't pick existing partitions like you can during desktop installations. You can only create new ones. I thought maybe just create the OS partition, but I'm concerned that if I go 1 MB over the existing, it'll ruin my raid partition. Does anyone have experience with this or know where I can find out more on it?
