    Again an excellent HOWTO! Especially now that I'm starting to experiment with Ubuntu's software RAID ;)

    Quick question though: will you be making a similar HOWTO for RAID-5?

    It's not planned yet because RAID1 is far more common than RAID5.

    This might fail on Fedora

    If you haven't done this

    > device (hd0) /dev/sda
    > root (hd0,0)
    > setup (hd0)
    > device (hd1) /dev/sdb
    > root (hd1,0)
    > setup (hd1)

    when the raid is originally setup and /dev/sda fails, when
    you reboot the machine it won't restart.

    My /proc/mdstat output uses the following notation:

    md0 : active raid1 ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2[0] ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/part2[1]

    However, the mdadm.conf uses /dev notation. Is it still ok to use /dev notation with mdadm?

    I guess the /dev/... are symlinks to the other notations (or vice versa). I think you can use both.
