I have tried set-up the disk for raid array but keep coming across
problems. The system keeps saying I don't have a / root area.
Basically I set-up the disks like this:
10 gb / bootable raid
1 gb swap
239 gb /home raid

The problem was that it did not recognise the bootable root partition
and kept saying there is no root partition.

In the end I did this:
10 gb / bootable
1 gb swap
239 gb /home raid

10 gb /temp
1 gb swap
239 gb /home raid

It seems to have worked and I have an installed system. Am I setting
myself up for a fall please? Can anybody see a problem with what I am
trying to do? Is there a mailing list that simply deals with
setting-up servers please?
