i've never done raid, so will be only limited help.

if you're freezing, it sounds like an irq conflict, or something similar. if it only happenes when using the network, maybe a conflict with your network card. you could try moving cards/irq's around.

you may wanna try over at the storagereview.com forums. Lots of guys there have experience with raid configs.

good luck,
