This machine runs ubuntu, and there is an old NT partition that was
prior to ubuntu.
The machine I have here was initially loaded with warty, and then
converted to a software raid mirroring setup.
At the time I installed warty, the installer didn't support installing
onto raid, so I did it myself.
I installed warty.
Then, I fdisk'ed the second drive to have the same partition sizes as
the first disk, but set them up as linux raid autodetect types.
Then, I copied all the data from the primary disk to the secondary disk
and rebooted into 'degraded' mode.
Then, I changed the partition types on the primary partitions to raid
autodetect, and initiated a raid rebuild.
So, I believe the problem has to do with the fact that the boot
partition isn't located on /dev/hda or /dev/sda, but rather that it is
on /dev/md0. Could be completely wrong about that, though.
Of course, Hoary can now be set up with raid mirroring from the get-go,
so that's just dandy.
