Hi all


I just bought 2 brand new 2 tb Hitachi 7200 rpm hard drives. I want to create a Raid 1 storage pool to store Hd and standard def video as my new imac only has 500 Gb and is filling up fast. I have 2 spare computers available. The first is the G5. it is a dual 2.0 with 6 Gb of memory.It has 2 hard drive slots. If i use it I dont have Leopard discs available but i do have a working clone available on an external firewire drive. I dont care about power usage as it will only be on when adding data. It uses SATA drives natively so it is easy. I would like a clean install of leopard but no discs. I have my Tiger discs. Is there any disadvantage to using Tiger?    

I also have my MDD G4 867. It is running Tiger. It uses PATA discs so i would need a SATA card to use the drives. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
