Alvin, I first noticed on Fedora 11 that I could not do kickstart 
installations onto a drive that was previously part of a RAID set, i.e. 
if the installer detected a RAID superblock. I remember at the time 
thinking that it was an annoyance but after reading your horror story, 
it seems that it was a prudent thing to do.
