I am trying to set up my system (8.04 server) with software raid. I got
most of the way through the install and then it failed to install grub.
I tried installing lilo and that failed as well. I feel like the
problem is that my /boot partition is part of a 4 disk raid 5 array. Is
it possible to install your boot loader onto a raid array? When setting
up a partition on a raid array, there is no option to make the partition
bootable. I guess this makes sense but the question is how do I get
around this? Does the logical partition on each of the disks that makes
up the /boot raid need to be made bootable? Does just one of those
partitions need to be made bootable?
To be or not to be, that is the question
2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
0b11000100 || !0b11000100
0b11000100 || 0b00111011
255, that is the answer.
