Linux (Ubuntu Studio 9.10) on a raid0?


Hello peeps,

Before I attempt this install, thought it would be wise to ask for some advice here first. I just read on a really outdated forum that the Linux Kernel cannot be installed on a Raid0. Though it seemed possible to install all the software one desires onto the Raid.

I am yet quite the noob with Linux, so have no clue as to how I could seperately install the Kernel from the software, though wise enough to know that about 5 different partitions should be made to smooth up some processes eventually.

My 2 questions are:
-Can I install Linux (Ubuntu Studio 9.10) onto a hardware configured Raid0?
-If my Raid0 is 500GB, could one advise me how big/small the partition sizes should be that will be needed for Multimedia creations, and gaming in Wine?

(I know how to create partions upon the initial installation of the distro, but have no clue how big they should be or which data should be installed per partition. Example: Swap, etc)

Your help is most welcome, and I thank you in advance for any info you can supply.
