To answer my own questions, and following some more fiddling, it seems
that creating a tiny 100MB partition at the start of the the first disk,
mount it as 'boot' and turn the 'bootable' flag, then only create a
RAID0 device to host all the rest, works fine...

RAID0 made super easy... thank you so much M. Ubuntu ! :o)
