I normally use dedictaed RAID1 for OS/Apps and dedicated RAID1 for Logs. You can also create a spindle set for the page file.

I've never seen a great benefit from using a dedicated spindle set for caching, but it is definitely useful for logging...

Have a look at Table 2 from here for an MS view: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc750619.aspx

I don't necessarily agree with the above though as I have always believed (from experience with Exchange/SQL) that log files are better with RAID1 as discussed here: http://www.sql-server-performance.com/faq/raid_1_raid_5_p1.aspx

Cheers

JJ
