Hi all,

I am currently experimenting with a PC and installing Leopard on it (because I love it so much!) and actually got it working properly. I really want to optimize it, first by fine tuning the hard drives.

Currently the system has one 200GB SATA2 Drive, and one 500GB SATA2 Drive. Is there any way to have them work as one drive or any way to set them up to perform faster? Is it even recommended?
QUOTE Thanks

Discussing the use of Leopard on non Mac hardware is against our forum rules.

If this was on a mac pro though, you would need a raid card in order to get any performance increase from the raid set up although there are instructions online to set up a software raid.

Sorry I didn't know it was prohibited to discuss this, I understand.

Would you be able to tell me if there are raid setups that allow two drives to act as one big drive?

Set up your drives to be in a RAID 0. You can do this on any mac in disk utility.
