Array config...

Don't laugh...
I'm using the integrated smart array. Should I create 2 arrays:

Array1: 9.1 no RAID for the system
Array2: 18, 18, 18 drives RAID5 for the data

or create one array with the 3 18gig drives and create 2 logical drives from that? One for System, one for Data?
What would be the difference?
What's the best config?

Re: Array config...

For performance, create one array and 2 logical drives. I don't think I would depend on one unprotected drive for the OS install - not with how long it takes to install Win2K.
