Put everything on RAID-1 and you should be fine -- which gives you 
the advantage of having a mirror copy of all data.  If you need more 
disk space than that, my suggestion would be to split up the storage 
across the two disks (as opposed to doing RAID-0), and you can set up 
cron jobs to do manual nightly copies of the most important disks to 
identical backup slices on the other disk.
