You can creat multiple partitions on a RAID array. I have 2 15 GB drives in RAID 0 to form a 30 GB logical drive. I have a 5 GB partition with my OS, and a 25 GB partition for storage. Whenever Win98 has to be reinstalled, I can reformat the 5 GB partition without losing anything on the 25 GB partition. If the Promise RAID controller goes out, though, both partitions will be useless until I hook the drives up to another Promise RAID controller. A standard IDE controller can't read data from the drives unless I completely reformat them and destroy my RAID array.
