i have an ide disk with 3 partititions: mounted on /, /swap, /home with
/dev/hde1-3. Now i put another ide disk in my Computer and wanted to
create a softraid for the /home partitition. I compiled a new Kernel
2.2.18 with all raid support and created the same partititions on my new
I set up an /etc/raidtab:
when i wanted to create the array with mkraid /dev/md0 it told me hde3
was mounted, ok i umounted it, but now it tells me hde3 has an ext2
filesystem and that i should use mkdraid -f. Now i don't know if it will
erase all my data on hde3 or what it does when i use -f.
My System is a P100, 64MB Ram, 2*40GB and Suse 7.1.
Can anyone help me with setting up this array? and excuse my bad englis,
