Hi Eugen,

Apart from using a software RAID card connected to HDs, I never use
Linux/FC/RH software RAID before.  I'm interested to have a test. 
Please help me to understand

Do I need 2 HDs for RAID 0/1/2?

If 1) above be "YES", whether both of them have to be connected as
master on primary IDE and Secondary IDE respectively.

Is there a visible improvement on operation in running RAID 0/1/2

Please advise.  TIA
