There is a fairly big note at the top which states that using the 
livecd, installing dmraid, and then running ubiquity can allow you to 
bypass the need for doing most of the steps. The document seems pretty 
well updated for what needs to be done for 6.06, though. Just be careful 
to read the steps fully to avoid doing something that is no longer 
required by Dapper which might hose the system. Otherwise, the changes 
you stated above seem proper.

Just to be clear, I do not use fakeRaid, and thus have not tried the 
page in question.
