This particular system is actually a mirror of a production server,
a CentOS 5.7 (Final), which is also configured the same exact way as far
as the raid goes. The data is already on a different machine. The one
I'm going to be working on is the backup to the main server. So, even
if I don't create a backup, it won't be a total loss as I just have to
mirror it from the main system again. However, that being said, I do
plan on backing it up anyway, just to cover my ass. In a moment of
stupidity, I could very easy reverse the rsync command and end up
deleting everything from the main server instead of mirroring it. :)

Agreed, but I'm also considering redoing the raid. I still can't
come up with a good reason why it was created the way it was. I'm sure
they had their reasons at the time.
