OOH - odd number of disks for RAID 0 >> BRAIN HURTS.

These days, I can only do math in my head in powers of 2.

2 advil plus a dose of the paper at hotsos on "Aligning Oracle Blocks with Hardware Stripe Boundaries".

RAID 1 ( 2 )
RAID 10 ( 4, 8)
RAID 0 ( 1, 2, 4, 8 ) Far better to use that odd number for a hotspare (although a hot spare for RAID 0 is not really worthwhile).

RAID F ... sorry, can't do it.
