Okay, that is good. :) The install process in Breezy should be easy
enough to not pose problems. If you already have a server installed
and you just need to add discs to, 'mdadm' is the command you need to
administer MD devices (RAID arrays).

Once you have created an array, you can check its progress and status
with 'mdadm --detail /dev/mdX' where X is an integer.
