i am currently installing fedora core 5 on a machine that was running ubuntu for about a year..

what i want to do is set this thing up with a raid..

currently, it has:

st3400832a hard drive
abit kv-80 motherboard

this board has sata raid built in..

my question is..

i can't find the exact same drive i have now (to by a matching one)..

do i need an exact matching one?

also..

if i can't find one, would it be advisable to try getting matching sata drives and use the built in raid controller?

thanks!
