raid0 or raid 1.
Raid 0 is a strip set with greater speed as both drives share the load equaly.
Raid1 is a volume set with slower speed because one drive is totaly filled before the other starts to fill.
There are *almost* no bad BP6s. There are mostly bad caps.

No BP6s remaining

you can 'raid' in win2k
not proper raid, but windows system software raid

raid 0,1,5 and some other one too

you can have 2 x 10gb as one 10gb drive in mirror mode
2 x 10gb as 20gb in stripe mode, plus windows, i think sort of extends accross.

you can have 4 x 10gb as 1 x 10gb
2 as mirror and two in standby in case of failure
plus there's google
bp6's 3 x dual @ 533
. . . . 1 x dual @ 466
. . . . 1 sngl @ 400
[( 2 x dual xeon 2.4ghz )]
[( 2 x dual xeon 2.66ghz )]
[( 1 x 2.4C ghz )]
[( 1 x 2.4B ghz )]
[( 1 x dual AMD 1800MP )]
[( 1 x P4 1600 )]
[( 1 x 500 ppga )]
3 x piii 866
