If you can afford it, I would recommend RAID 0+1 (a mirrored stripe set).
This way you get the added performance of a stripe set and the fault
tolerance of a mirror.  You would need a minimum of 4 disks to do this.  I
like RAID 5 too, but the parity stripe can decrease performance.  If
performance is not the issue, go with RAID 5.  Also, whatever yo do, go with
hardware and not software raid.  You will thank yourself in the long run.

Another thing to do is do a mirror for the OS partition and a RAID 5 for the
data.

Building a 2000 DC in a pristine domain. What would most of you recommend on

the DC for fault tolerance, RAID 1 or RAID 5 and why?
