RE: mirroring

It might be possible with software raid. I don't think it would be with
hardware raid because you'd have to delete partitions etc.

I have 2 identical disks but I had installed RHEL 4 on first disk only,
i have /boot and / partitions only. Now, i want to have mirror (raid1)
with the 2nd disk. Can i do this without destroying data on the 1st
disk? Is there a good howto out there ?
