Raid setup SQL 2005 server.

Hi there I need to re-setup my raid controller on my SQL 2005 server as we are running out of space on the C: drive, what is the best practice if I have 6X36GB drives? What I thought I will do is to RAID the first 4 in to a 30GB (c drive) and a 105GB (d drive). Then stripe the other 2x36GB drives into a (e drive) where all the transaction logs are saved…..? What do you guys think? Satya SKJ
