I'm going to get a RAID setup soon for redundancy. I was reading about RAID 4/5/6, and I guess I don't really understand what the parity blocks are and how these RAID modes compare to your typical striped or mirrored setup. I don't want to buy more than 3 drives. If I can get more speed as well as the all important redundancy then sign me up.
