Right, George, like there's only one small reason to untie your 
lifeboat from the ship as it's going down. Leave the RAID for data 
only. If anything happens with the RAID, you still have your OS disk 
to boot from in order to diagnose what is wrong. A broken RAID is 
thin ice enough, even  worse if your OS has to skate on it.

If you use the server/workstation approach (two PCs), then the only 
software on your server OS disk is the OS itself along with any RAID 
management software. Keep the server simple, and reinstalling the OS 
on a new disk is simple.
