well the ubuntu alternate install cd did not give me the option of RAID
1+0 so I chose RAID 5.  I know that I might have been able to find a
work around but after spending the day assembling my new box I just want
to get it up and running. Since I spent a few extra bucks on parts this
time around and bottlenecking I may encounter with RAID 5 will be
tolerable enough.  

Ill post the benchmarks in the next day or so....hmmm by the way can
anyone recommend a good benchmark suit for a quad core. lmbench is slow
and unreliable on SMP boards.
