Hey, so far have the Turnkey Fileserver up & running fine on an old 120 GBs IDE drive. Now, I want to add a 1 TB drive (SATA) to store the data exclusively, with the option of running other drives at a later date for RAID backup. I installed a VANTEC 6-port SATA II 150 PCI Host Card w/RAID (model UGT-ST310R) so I can add the 1 TB drive, but I am unable to "see" the drive via webmin (although as a relative Linux newbie I may be missing things). Also, is there a way to ensure that I keep all the file server data on the 1 TB drive (so I can keep it insulated from the drive running the File Server) or is this just a remnant of old Windows OS thinking and stupid.
I am aware that the PCI RAID card is probably a software card and Windows drivers dependent (as per a previous post here), but short of installing mdmadmin for Linux software RAID, can't I just use the drive as a single entity before I delve into the world of RAID? Or am I going about this all wrong.
Thanks in advance,
