[SOLVED] Setting up Raid1 & Web Server

I'm fussing with a Dell OptiPlex 7050 SFF to set it up with Raid1 & as a web server (It has 2x 400GB SSD's)

In another thread @DutchMaster wrote ...

Partition sda as follows:

    sda1: 512MB for /boot
    sda2: 48GB for /
    sda3: 8GB for swap
    sda4: remainder for /home

Partitions sda1, sda2 and sda4 need a file system, choose one from the list: ext4, jfs or btrfs. You can mix different file systems, just ensure the appropriate tool package is installed (ie.e jfsutils, btrfs has a similar package). This allows the kernel to control and check the file system.

I think I've made a mess of things such that at the "Step 11 Partition disks" of Setup the SSD shows up as:

RAIDmd126 device #:RAIDactive device #(auto-read-only)RAIDraid1 device #sda(1)RAIDsdb #1 400.1DB

Does this indicate a hardware Raid or a software Raid or a mess of both?

When I choose Guided Partitioning then Guided Use Entire Disk then press Enter on that long device descriptor then Partitioning Scheme" All files in one partition (recommended for new users) it will allow me to make some changes but not any to the size of the sub partitions.

The current partitions are:

#1 538.0 MB B f ESP
#2 398.5 GB    f ext4  /
#3     1.0 GB   f swap  swap

WDYT, please?
