Page one. Define RAID.  Page 2, who should use it.  Configuring Raid (after
a few more wasted pages).  Read the man page.  It seems too sparse for a
beginner and, with such sparseness, not much use to an experienced admin. 

I can't see that being very useful to someone with little or no RAID
experience.   (And actually, it's so sparse that the experienced won't need
the little bit of suggestion it gives.)

In contrast, the CentOS wiki article, if running CentOS 5 or
6, gives an easy to follow guide, complete with commands one might actually
type.  (At least some of the instructions don't seem to work with CentOS 7
