1. IS this drive compatible with Linux ?
2. I have read a number of issues with RAID-ing these drives – and I am under the impression that they are mostly related to hardware based RAID. Is that correct? I am thinking of using software based RAID . Any gotchas that I should worry about?
3. I have another drive that is also 500GB but not WD. WOuld software RAID based on LINUX work on mismatched drive?
Thanks in advance!
