   Fabulous!  Won'tcha put it into the Wiki?  Right now I'm covered up
with life-issues right now, so I'm short on time.  But if you'll start
it, making sure everyone knows it's under construction, I'll help you
walk through it on a fresh install as soon as I'm able...mail me when
it's there, aye?

   I'm a big fan of the software RAID. Again, not an option for say, or Google, but for 'plain folks' it does a fabulous job!
