What is the recommended wiring for a 2 drive RAID?
a: master slave?
b: separate IDE's?
Hardware RAID is better than software RAID, and SCSI is better than IDE. Unfortunately, these are also much more expensive.
If you've settled on using software IDE RAID, connect the drives to separate IDE channels to reduce the liklihood of the IDE bus being the bottleneck. Performance will still be bad, though, probably worse than if you didn't configure the drives as RAID. Good luck.
