My understanding is you can have different sizes in a raid pair, but the smaller or slowest one will state the size or speed of access of the raid array.

Hmmm, that raises a question. I know that a pair has to be the same size but
can you have different size pairs or are they all suppose to be the same
size?
And, how many pair can you have, or is that determined by the hardware?

I got this weird feeling that we are all about to learn Raid and then go
out and buy a 160 gb hd..

Oh no, you need two or four or more to do any good. :O) One hard drive is worthless with RAID. Get your wallet out. Bob Noble
