Maybe I explained myself incorrectly. I'm interested in a hardware
RAID controller, but would like to use software RAID5, and wondered if
it was necessary (or beneficial) to use LVM in conjunction with it?
I'm just not sure how it works -- do I use one or the other? Or LVM on
top of RAID5? Or otherwise?
The installer is confusing -- it seems that in order to use RAID5, I
must delete the LVM configuration that it creates by default, correct?
