Default Re: Dual Booting With Linux in Raid

I'm still digesting the rest of your post, because it seems to have some value. Parts of it are things that I already know and agree with, others I am still weighing out in my mind. Your comment about Raid 0 threw me just a bit, because the only form of raid that I knew was not really raid, is JBOD. However, a rose by any other name.... The other thing that I'm thinking about, is your discussion of using NTLDR as the boot loader. Most of the people with whom I have discussed this, seem to favor either Grub or LILO. These have caused me some problems, i.e. doing a kernel upgrade and the system tearing itself apart. I have also read some about using 3rd party bootloaders, but I still tend to use a Linux flavor. In the end, the best would be the one that is most reliable, but I do not have the experience to judge this for myself.
