g4 raid without controller?
i've got a qs933 and i wonder if i can use the standard-ide-controller to get a raid system...
do i really just have to install 2 harddrives and connect the two drives to a stripe-raid with the disk-tool and then it works? without an additional raid-controller?
or do i need an additional raid-controller?

In OSX, Disk Utility supports striped RAID without a card.
In OS9 & X, SoftRAID does the same.
The Siig ATA133 RAID card supports hardware RAID, and is only about $120.
But then again, whereas Apple is being run by a brilliant marketer with the uncanny ability to bend people to his will, Gateway is being run by a man perfectly willing to go on television and show the world that he solicits business advice from a talking cow...

software RAID = approx 5-10% gain (RAID0)
hardware RAID = approx 15-20% gain (RAID0)
just get the card. You will be happer too as you mac's HDD is probably ATA-133 anyways.
software RAID is for cheapos. besides - hardware RAID (at least adaptec cards) have more options than a software RAID.
Rather own a Mac than a Dell
