That's my approach as well. I have one (relatively) small boot drive
that's non-RAID, and a gigantic RAID-5 data partition. I use it for
all of my music, pictures, documents, yada yada. If the boot drive
goes south, no big deal-- reformat and reinstall. There's also the
potential to take the three RAID-5 drives and move them to another
server if necessary.
