    Please help...

    I recently purchased a mac pro with a 250GB OS drive. A colleague of mine told me that I'd be able to run three additional drives (500GB each) in RAID 3 through Disk Utility. I'm trying to do this but it looks like I only have the option of building RAID 1, RAID 0 or a combination of them where I would need to use a fourth drive.

    Anyone with info I will love forever! :D

    OS X doesn't have software support for something like that. You'll need to get a third-party hardware solution, like a RocketRAID card in order to get what you need.
