I'm working on improving a machine I recently assembled by making it
There are some subtle hurdles.
I installed Windows XP PRO using the on board RAID chip making the large
partition RAID 0, NTFS. I did not use all of the ~ 260 GB, leaving
4 GB or so open.
1) DVD-RW region. Windows XP Pro asked me what region to make the DVD-RW
drives , and it seems that Win made both DVD drives the same region. I
put 2 DVD's
in the system so I could have 2 regions. Is there a way to make this a
2 region machine
under SuSE ?? under Fedora ?? R-hat??
If I keep switching back and forth between XP and SuSE won't I run out
of burns on the
DVD ?? It is my understanding that the DVD drives a purposely made so
they freeze on
one region after ~ 20 region change burns...
2) RAID 0 .... If I put a second RAID 0 array in the chassis, this is a
big one, I can boot
from it to get SuSE, but with the Windows RAID driver I'm guessing I
won't be able to
see the NTFS // XP Pro array. Suggestions ??
