very simple question to which I couldn't find an answer:
I'm about to buy a motherboard equipped with nvidia's nforce 720D chipset, which allows raid 0/1/5/10/jbod, but I couldn't find out if this raid would work under linux ?
Please note that I do not attend to boot from it, this will be done on a dedicated hard drive, the raid will be for storage (shared with other computers in the house).
The reason I ask this is that nvidia website for this chipset state its raid "Provides a simple point and click wizard-based interface for creating and managing multi-disk storage configurations." which sounds like it's managed through a windows utility rather than a bios-time one.
The features I'm looking for are raid5 and the ability to repair a damaged raid by simply replacing the faulted hard drive.
Can any one help me with that one ? I really would like not to screw up my purchase.
