12.1. RAID and Other Disk Devices
RAID, or Redundant Array of Independent
Disks, allows a group, or array, of
drives to act as a single device. Configure any RAID functions
provided by the mainboard of your computer, or attached
controller cards, before you begin the installation process.
Each active RAID array appears as one drive within Fedora.
On systems with more than one hard drive you may configure Fedora
to operate several of the drives as a Linux RAID array without
requiring any additional hardware.
You can use the Fedora installation program to create
Linux software RAID arrays, where RAID functions are controlled
by the operating system rather than dedicated hardware. These
functions are explained in detail in Section 12.7, “Disk Druid”.
