sorry, my apologies... I double checked with my DBA... It's 10 for the OS/swap, 
5 for the data, and 10 for the transaction logs

everything I've seen points to 10-5-10... Raid10 for your OS, Raid5 for your 
swap, Raid10 for your database files. That's what we generally do on the SQL DB 
servers in the Citrix farms we deploy. Of course, these are pretty beefy 4- and 
8-way boxes, though.

Just wanted to get the lists opinion on this. 

We have RAID 5 for several of our servers. However, our database server is 
going to be rebuilt and I have read several articles saying that RAID 5 is not 
a good choice for a DB server. What would you guys recommend for a DB Server?
