It could be. Here's what I did:
* partition each of my 500GB SATA drives (sda,sdb) as follows:
- one 100MB primary partition
- ten 50GB logical partitions (I have my reasons)
* Create md raid 1 devices containing pairs of corresponding
partitions from sda,sdb.
* Set the 100MB RAID device to ext3, mount on /boot
* Set the ten 50GB RAID devices to LVM
* Choose "Configure Logical Volume Manager." The thing tells me it
needs to write the current partitioning scheme to disk....
The partition tables of the following devices are changed:
RAID1 device #1
RAID1 device #10
RAID1 device #2
RAID1 device #3
RAID1 device #4
RAID1 device #5
RAID1 device #6
RAID1 device #7
RAID1 device #8
RAID1 device #9
The following partitions are going to be formatted:
Partition #1 of RAID1 device #0 as ext3
Write the changes to disk and configure LVM?

about any changes you made to /dev/md/1p1 until you reboot -- so
you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting.

Unfortunately, not yet. Did I do something wrong?
