    RAID - USB Keyrings?

    Well I have a few of these kicking around

    2 * 512MB
    1 * 128MB
    1 * 32MB
    1 * 64MB

    Anyway - I was wondering - could I somehow do something silly like make them in to a RAID partition on USB? maybe in Windows and install an OS on it?

    Meaning if I used CF -> IDE I could do RAID easily.

    I suspect I could do this with SoftRAID - I wanna try though

    Theres a guy that did this on Mac OS X, started with floppies and then tried memory sticks: http://ohlssonvox.8k.com/fdd_raid.htm

    And heres the instructions to make windows xp do software RAID 5:
    http://www4.tomshardware.com/storage...119/index.html

    Unfortunately, it won't boot off a soft RAID array
    Now go away before I taunt you a second time.
