RAID-0 on the G5

I wasn’t too clear in that last post about that hard drive.
Along with the gig of RAM, I also bought a 250 Gig hard drive.
Together with the existing, Apple-installed 250 Gig drive, I was able to do a RAID-0 setup.
It’s software RAID-0, and it’s built in to Mac OS X.

How my RAID setup looks in the Disk Utility.

Like the slight pun in the name?

So far I have noticed a bit of an improvement, but I haven’t really tried hammering the drive.
I think the main place I might notice it easily would be loading levels in Quake 3.
But first.. I have to re-install Quake 3!
