Availability of setup HOW-TO information

I'm just about to embark on reconfiguring our Proliant 1600 R from a NETWARE based server to a RH 7.2 one. I was wondering if there is any information available on the net in relation to the best method of setting up such a system, in particular whether and how to partiiton the RAID-5 drive setup - and how this setup would be affected by me adding an extra disk or two to the array further down the track.

Any helpful insights into setup methods or gotchas would be appreciated too.

Thanks in advance...

Re: Availability of setup HOW-TO information

The best thing to do would be using Compaq's Smart Start Automatic Server setup process. Which is not only easy but very user friendly. It has answers to all your questions. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact our Tech Support at 1-800-OK-COMPAQ.
