Mainly in two of these:

Nope - each as a separate NTFS drive mounted into an empty NTFS directory
structure - that way if a drive goes down I only lose one drive worth of
data. Also Win2003 Server doesn't support RAID on external (removable)
devices unless you frig with the registry and when you do that you find out
why - software RAID5 on firewire devices judt doesn't work! It errors as
soon as you try to format the array. Spanning/striping works though but
obviously one drive goes down and the lot goes!
